The best editorial cartoons are simple in on the surface but complex in execution. As on professor once told me, "It should be simple, but not simplistic -- complex but not complicated." This one put my caricature skills to the test and I dare say I nailed 'em. In fact, they may not even be caricatures at all I suppose. The woman, on the other hand, presented her own challenges. In making a cartoon about allegations of harassment on the part of powerful men, it would defeat the purpose if she were to be in some slinky dress and stilettos, but she has to be instantly recognizable as feminine for the cartoon to work well. As an artist, this can be a fine line to walk. I literally Googled "sensible shoes" for some reference images. I considered using the "Fearless Girl" statue for a stand in but it didn't pack the same punch. As for the cloud of masculinity, I'm glad I learned to create custom brushes in Photoshop and use the brush properties properly. More so, I'm glad the symbol closest to the woman's hand is pointed toward her -- just to emphasize the opposition in the micro. You know, "simple but not simplistic."
