I drew this illustration many years ago, circa 1996, for an ad agency I worked for at the time. It was for a school brochure or newsletter; how they took the raw material of their students and chiseled them into bright young citizens or some such hooey.

What I find unusual about it is that I didn't normally draw like this at the time. If you could see my work back then, it looked nothing like this. At the time I was in this ill-advised cross-hatching phase, where everything I drew was covered in a dense forest of criss-crossing lines. My characters also tended to look quite stiff back then as well; nothing like the rubbery and expressive poses seen here. This looks more like something I drew yesterday rather than 15 years ago. It's like I was somehow channeling my future style.

It was drawn the Old School way in colored pencil on paper, then scanned into Photoshop.
