I had the pleasure of working with Cinders at the Globe & Mail for a piece in their “Facts and Arguments” section. She assigned a narrative story about a man reminiscing about his childhood in Port Credit, Ontario while with his wife, two year old son and dog. The overall art direction was to show the family walking around their neighborhood into which, it is alluded, they could move back.
These were two sketches I thought would have been cool to follow through with and luckily the first one was chosen. In the second sketch I wanted to focus on a moment in the story where his wife was looking at him with a smile (which is something that is repeated a lot in the story) as he looks at az old home remembering a moment in time.
