Last week I worked on some editorial pieces for The Boston Globe about notorious gangster Whitey Bulger’s life on the lam. The team over at The Boston Globe are fantastic, and working with art director Nicole O’Toole was an absolute pleasure. After a couple of weeks of disappointing projects, these pieces were a much needed respite. It was great to have the opportunity (and time) to really play with color and light in a way that is a little out of character for me.
It seems that all of my years of complaining about being “the guy who draws bad relationships” have finally paid off, considering this is maybe the 5th or 6th job I have done in recent memory pertaining to convicts and seriously bad dudes.
