Bill Bryson Illustrated Interview

As you can see by the lack of recent posts, I haven't been very career focused since my wife and I left for Rwanda in April. However, one job has recently been published online that I am quite proud of. My friend, film-maker Barry Gibb, has a way of writing to famous people requesting an interview and actually getting a, "Sure, why not?" response back.

Popular science writer Bill Bryson was the subject of one of these interviews, and Barry asked me to do an illustration to add more visual interest and support what Bill was talking about. The idea was to film illustration techniques so close-up, that they became abstract and "sciency" looking, followed by revealing the entire composition at the end of the film.
