Daniel Hertzberg – The New Yorker: The Hour


A few weeks ago I was asked to do a full-page illustration for a review of “The Hour” on the BBC, for the New Yorker. It was truly an honor to be asked to work on something this big! Unfortunately it didn’t print as a full-pager (only 1/4 page) but it’s still an honor to be in the issue. They wanted an interesting composition, so I tried going all-out. The angle is pretty much impossible but I wanted it to jump on the page. The show is based on a news hour on the BBC during the 1950s, so it was important to show older 1950s TV cameras in the space. Lots of sketches below, lots of different angles.
