As soon as I heard about my assignment I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I commute to Columbia, and something that would really make my day pretty damn miserable is being caught in one of those windy thunderstorms on a day that I absolutely have to be here. You know, the umbrella-flipping, tearing-portfolio-out-of-your-hands kind of storm. This is a very rough, very preliminary sketch, and I need to redo a lot of things about it, but the jist is there. I'm thinking of trying a nouveau-ish style just so that I can physically portray the wind.
