Thomas James – The Facade of New York Politics

Here’s a new editorial illustration for The Capitol, based on the recent failure of the state government players in New York to follow through on their promises of reform. For this piece, the Art Director asked that I focus on the idea of government as a facade, and we agreed on the literal approach of depicting the state capitol building as a false front. This project also gave me a great opportunity to continue my recent experiments in blending line drawings, digital painting, and digital collage.

  1. Thanks guys. This was a fun one to work on, and I’m loving experimenting with digital collage and making it a bigger part of my work. It helps me to think outside the box of coming up with an idea and drawing it. Rather, I can now think more about making an effective image. Cheers.
