Uncle Sam for The New York Times Sunday Biz
I had the pleasure doing another piece for the New York Times Sunday Business section, this time it was about the budget deficit and questions about national debt. I've never done an Uncle Sam so I was kind of excited to pay homage to Montgomery Flagg's iconic character. For that, I used multiple ink wash overlays to create a painterly effect.
It took a while to tweak the visual till it was just right. Uncle Sam is carrying the burden of national debt, but he's still managing.
