I'm a bit of a news junkie. My training is in poly-sci, not art. What I'd really like to do is to illustrate news articles so I've been putting together some samples for submission to various local publications.
This one was done for a recent story about the fate of a local dive bar. They're really considering moving it down the street in this manner, haha. nd yes, the sign above the door was accurately burned out like that, likely an intentional and beloved feature of the place.
