simcha weinstein, the "superhero rabbi" who i drew last year, liked his portrait so much that he asked me to design a banner for his website. he ministers to the students at pratt university and he's the author of several books, including up, up, and oy vey (pictured in the foreground). the banner turned into a "kitchen sink" assignment as simcha suggested more and more details for the picture. if none of them jump out at you, i feel like i did my job. the challenge was fitting them all in without getting crowded. i gotta say i'm proud of the air in this drawing.
