Illustration for Richmond Magazine

Here's the illustration done for Richmond Magazine about the long waits at local Richmond suburban restaurants. The Art Director wanted an image of a frustrated mother waiting for a table with her children. He wanted the image to not be taken too seriously and be fun, so I chose to handle the image completely digitally instead of my usual rendered approach. I thought rendering the figures too much would give the piece a solemn feel.

Below are the thumbnail sketches I sent the Art Director. He went with the close-up of the mother holding the child. I then did a final sketch which was approved, with one suggestion: to slim the mother down a bit to match the physique of the woman from the supplied reference I was given. So I did for the final.Final Sketch
