first sketch. Again, I like to work with very loose sketches in order to give myself breathing room when it comes to making the image. Collage is an improvisational medium.
This ran in last week's New York Times. The art director was Greg Ryan. the article was by Joanna Kaufman and dealt with teenagers who would rather stay in the city than hang out with their parents at the family's second home. I'm posting it here because I saved it at several stages in order to keep Greg abreast of its progress.
I added color to help Greg decipher my hieroglyphics.
The Father's head collaged in.
Here's more added. I moved the Manhattan window, the older son and the daughter in the sketch.
Manhattan window.
The kid brother was starting to look like Alfred E. Neuman here so I needed to rethink and rework him. A special thanks to A. Richard Allen who alerted me to the X-Box Controller.
This is the finish as published. It is 242 layers.
