This illustration is for the current issue of The Hollywood Reporter. It accompanies a piece written by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg about why New York is a great place to film movies. The idea was to draw the mayor as various famous NY movie characters. I told the talented AD Shanti Marlar that if she let me draw Bloomberg as Travis Bickle with the iconic mohawk, I could die a happy man. I really appreciate the volume of fun jobs THR have sent my way this year. Below are the sketches I submitted early on for approval.
