I made this illustration for a "Save The Date" announcement for Noble Desktop, an excellent little design school I just so happen to work at. Noble will be having a 20th anniversary party this November, and for the "Save The Date" I drew up this little number:
Turnaround on this was whip-fast, and I had a lot of fun with it. My boss had the idea of a guy tucking the date away in his trenchcoat, and I had fun taking that and making my work look a little noir-y.
I was really happy with the second sketch, so I actually blew it up and inked over it, making my few adjustments in ink rather than re-pencilling.
