New illustration

The following commentary illustration was done for Education Week and accompanied an article that details the causes behind the nation wide issue of school districts in fiscal crisis.

The image on the left was the rough sketch approved by the editor. He had two notes: Make the cliff feel deep (thus I decided that the bag of money would have fallen of the man's head) and make the crowd at the edge more diverse (which was my intention but obviously didn't translate from my sketch). In the end the direction helped a lot, making the image stronger.
