Cover Illustration - "Who-Ville"

Here's an illustration for a newsletter/magazine published by the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University - the Academy of Alternative Journalism. The first image is the published newsprint copy and below is the wrap-around illustration. The image is kind of a Dr. Suess inspired rendering of the Chicago skyline (albeit very much different from the Dr. Suess art - I just couldn't pull it off).

Thanks for the kind words! I've seen your comics online before and yes, we share some similar sensibilites (although I wish I knew Spanish so I could read them). Thanks for sending the links as well!


As previously stated, I don't know Spanish, but I believe you're saying you liked the Otto Soglow & Betty Boop pinbacks. Yeah, they're awesome aren't they?
