This illustration was done as a commission assignment. The client had this very specific scene in mind, described it to me in extreme detail, and asked if I could draw it. He also asked me to do a second illustration which would continue the story. What you see here is the first of the client's humorous little two-part story.
I forget what exactly went wrong... but I ran into a schedule problem where my work on the second illustration got delayed, then I ended up having to finish it very quickly in order to get it shipped out to the client within a reasonable time-frame. But I was in such a rush, that I forgot to scan that second illustration, before shipping. I am not usually so careless about such things, but that time, I sure was. So I have no digital file of the second illustration, and thus cannot post "part-two" of the little story the client asked me to draw. Oh well.
The piece was done in pen and ink on bristol board. I added the gray tones in Photoshop. Sorry color art fans, I have no plans to color this one.
