Numbers Make for a Horror Story

Here’s another illustration that was created for June’s Scotsman Guide Residential edition. After our Editor and I decided on the final direction to pursue, I once again pulled from childhood memories, of what it was like trying to solve my math homework. Story problems to be exact, usually around 1 or 2 a.m. That was a long time ago. And math has not become much easier since. So this illustration was almost a self portrait — but we had too many guys in the June illustrations. Therefore this one was changed to a female figure thankfully. Much more interesting to wrap the flowing hair around all those numbers anyway. Hope you enjoy the imagery.

I really like weaving the illustration in with the typography when it works. This example barely touches, but it still does.

As always, thanks very much for stopping by.
