Illustration for the Roanoker magazine. Roanoke’s mayor David Bower has a few career options after leaving office. Perhaps the most prominent option is a job at a ribbon factory. Ribbons are a scarce commodity after all the ribbon cutting events Bowers has done as mayor. Thanks to editor Kurt for the great assignment.

Every week, it seems like no matter what, Sara and I take Daisy for a walk. We either take her to  B.T. National Monument or the S.M.L. Community Park. The day before our walk, I got an idea for an illustration. It was some surreal image of a guy holding a head. So the next day on our walk, I took some reference pictures of myself and Daisy (as a stand in). But when I got home and looked at all the photos, I realized they were more interesting than my original idea. I used a few shoots and made this composite layout of the three of us at the park. It turned into a homage to our country life.

What kind of business prospers in Roanoke? Apparently it’s Hooters. Out of a dozen business that occupied a building along Williamson Rd, only Hooters lasted more than a year. Kurt makes the argument that we need more T&A restaurants in this area.

The G-man articles are always a little tongue-in-check, but I didn’t think the little man riding a hot dog was going to pass the sketch phase. But Kurt is an awesome Editor, with an even more twisted sense of humor than mine.
