Election Illustration

For this illustration,the page designer came to me with a thumbnail for a layout incorporating art, photo and text-- so I whipped up the art, tailored to fit.
...I drew all of the elements on separate layers and put it together over the course of a day and a half. As usual, this was not the only project I was working on during that time-- several daily duties absorbed most of my attention-- so it was created in brief, stop-and-go spurts-- not the ideal way to work, but in the short-staffed world of the newspaper biz you take what you can get.
...In the final version I had to fade the back ground confetti and removed the "change" sign to accommodate text.
