Regardless of innocence, getting pulled over by the police is always a bit intimidating. I’ll bet that even the Pope gets a little nervous seeing il polizia in the rear view of the Popemobile. That being said, any Popes out there driving around stewed on communion wine certainly deserve some quality time with the fuzz.Seven Days, Vermont’s alternative weekly newspaper, asked me to create an illustration to run with a cover story about the state’s DUI laws. Their proposed idea, a car side mirror view of an approaching officer.
Not having access to the story, my initial sketch was a bit more cartoonish. I was urged by Seven Days to aim for something a little more serious in tone. Now, having read the article, I can see that the “darker” illustration suits it better.
This issue of Seven Days marks the first of a new format size which is announced in a somewhat kitschy video, that’s equal parts The Sound of Music and How It’s Made. It’s not every day that an artist gets to see their work dance across a hillside in the hands of a Julie Andrews proxy.
