As part of my interview with the owner of MDOT, Mike asked me to create a vector portrait of him. I was then hired as an illustrator instead of the typesetter position I applied for. I’ve been happily working at MDOT ever since.
I did the artwork in greyscale to save time and send him the portrait as soon as possible. To capture his hairstyle, I drew a lot of lines… Much more than I ever did. I had to do so to capture his beard, but I’m pretty sure I would’ve been able to get away with less detail all over. The lines that define his facial features, clearly resemble him as he is in reality.
This is an impressive artwork that got me the job I now have. (:
