American Gothic

I’m still plugging away on the vector illustration I’ve written about before, and I’m still cobbling it together as I go along. I had always planned that this composition would involve a crowd. I thought I could cheat it with colored circles the way they did with crowd scenes in old cartoons like Speed Racer, but I didn’t like the way it looked. I thought I could do something with a little more detail but keep it simple so it wouldn’t detract from the subject of the illustration. I started doodling simple characters like the pair above. They came together quickly so I’ve been sitting in front of the TV digitally doodling hippies and bikers while watching crap on Amazon’s Prime.

It will all make sense when I’m done.
