Crain's Detroit Business - September 20
As challenging as it can be navigating our roads, sometimes it's just as challenging to navigate the route to funding our roads. In this case, the roads themselves were the most appropriate illustration for this editorial statement.
That's the Point!
Off the Drawing Board: The original concept for this cartoon was more simple than the final version. I changed the angle of the composition to allow for the additional signs and for the split dialogue balloons that - I think - deliver the set-up and punchline more effectively. Similar to road funding, from rough to finish, you can get there with a cartoon. There's just no direct route!
