New Work

Mike Freiheit – The Globe and Mail

Here’s a new piece I was recently contacted to do for the Globe and Mail. I was again able to work with the fantastic art director Matthew French.

The story was about a man who is reluctant to become the cycling coach of a group of young African boys in Windhoek, Namibia.

I haven’t ever posted my sketches before, so here are the sketches I submitted to Matthew.

I really, really hate wasting paper, and also having to erase/draw/erase some more until I get something right, so all of my sketches I now usually do on the computer, so it’s much easier to redo whatever isn’t working.

Matthew was most interested in sketches #3 and #5, so I went with sketch #3 because of the stacked figures and unique way it might interact with the text in the final design.
