Don’t worry, the baby depicted in this illustration was a paid actor, and the “poisons” in the bottles under the sink were all fake props. In other words, no one was harmed during the making of this illustration. It was created for a magazine article which emphasized the very important point of child-proofing the home. 

Each month I create a spot illustration, or two, for Metro Creative Graphics (in NYC)… a supplier to newspaper clients of editorial images of all sorts. Metro’s service is to have commissioned artists create relevant topic images which their subscriber clients can then obtain in a monthly package for reproduction use in their newspaper publications. This particular illustration posted here was indeed to illuminate the issue of dangers in the home for a small child. It was created simply… a gouache brush drawing with added color wash effects in Photoshop.
