Macleans obit illo: Las Vegas and Reno

Here's a Maclean's illustration from a while back. I had started a post on it but it's been languishing in draft mode purgatory. It finally gets to see the light of day!

The upper part of the illustration is Burrard Bridge, a famous Art Deco style bridge in Vancouver. It was a place the obituary subject frequented often, and she loved the musical "Singing in the Rain." She worked at a bank, loved travelling to Reno and Las Vegas, and was planning on a cruise.

Macleans has an iPad app so they require a spot illustration too -- so I take some elements from the frame and arrange them in a new way:

Hope you like it!
