So these are the two sketches I brought to class yesterday for our mock cover of The New Yorker. They are both about obesity- specifically child obesity. I really love the bird one but the class chose the pig for good reason. It shows a vending machine in an elementary school where they are enabling the constant snacking on junk food. The professor also liked the swirly tail in comparison to the swirly coils in the vending machine... kind of an "you are what you eat" thing.
I will post the colored version of the pig sketch tomorrow :-)
