New Yorker Illustration: "Anthracite Fields".

 

Here's an illustration that I did for the "Classical Music" section of the New Yorker. More specifically it's about "Anthracite Fields", which is an orchestra that performs while projecting a video about a generation of miners in Pennsylvania. 

 

It's always a treat to be in the New Yorker and this one was especially fun because I approached it in a way that I do for my on location work (loose, a bit more texture, etc.).

 

You can find the full article here (or in the May 26th issue):

Thank you.

    Daniel-

    You have really captured the mood here with your illustration style/texture and composition/concept.
    I like the mix of grays and the strong brown. Haven’t had a chance to read the article yet, but I get a sense that the musicians are set in the foreground of a movie or photo of the minors in the background. I can hear the music playing!
    Nice use of casual light source and reflection.
