Boise Weekly Illustration

Here's the latest for "The Boise Weekly". The story deals with the Idaho legislature's lack of funding for the upcoming year. The idea of the state government holding a bake sale to raise revenue is particularly attractive to me.

As far as the illustration is concerned, I've been more mindful of composition lately. I've been experimenting with various techniques and placements of elements in order to draw the eye to focal points. Ultimately, however, I can't be sure how the viewer will take in an illustration. There are theories as to how the average viewer's eye assesses a picture, but it seems unlikely to me that any blanket statement can be made regarding how people look at anything.
