New Work by John Coulter: Nevada Budget Illustration

John Coulter writes us:

“Hi Lilla,
I did an illustration for the Las Vegas Sun for an article about balancing the state’s budget. Below is the final, the layout, some closeups and the original sketch.

The symbol on the sleeve comes from the Nevada State Flag. I found a flat color, vector version of it, and spiced it up with some textures, and changed the fonts as well. The phrase “Battle Born” on the state flag reflects the state’s entry on the Union side during the Civil War in 1864.

Thanks,
John”
