. . . is that caricature illustrators like me no longer enjoy the increase in work we get drawing the various candidates amid the endless media coverage. I did the above quick spot for an internal promotion for a publicity company. In election years I do more high profile things like magazine covers and get jobs from publications and clients that ordinarily don’t use caricature illustration than in a non-election year. I believe I did one magazine cover, multiple interior illustration including one for MAD, and several smaller projects like the one above thanks to it being an election year…and this election year was a little slow for that kind of thing.
I’ll miss the extra work . . . but not the endless political ads!
