Utne: Bill O'Reilly
posted:
 This is the cover for the current issue of Utne Reader. Art directed by Stephanie Glaros. I enjoyed the back and forth over the phone. The above doodles were done during our first conversation. Below is the finish.



 Whenever I use a full on image of the sole of a shoe I've got this drawing by George Grosz in mind. I've referenced it from time to time over the years. I love the disconnected ankle feel of the foot as it seems to wobble freely at the end of the man's leg. One can almost hear it flop as it hits the pavement with the next step. I keep a separate file containing only photos of shoe soles with this drawing as the inspiration.
