Life, Unplugged

I did this illustration for Philadelphia's Grid Magazine on the fly last week for their back page article.  The concept is about a family finding one night a week to completely disconnect from their cell phones, video games, computers and texts in exchange for an uninterrupted dinner with each other followed by games, and music, etc.

This is actually one of the simpler concepts I gave the art director and I worked up the finish that day in a matter of a few hours using gouache on watercolor paper to start with and pen and ink lines for the family.  Brought the whole thing into the computer to play with the color saturation and clarity, and voila!
