Like last year, Local Living’s Thanksgiving day cover story featured struggling food pantries and ways for readers to volunteer in their communities. My challenge: do something different with the same story and no money. I called on Felix Sockwell, whose illustration services I’d won in an SNDF auction. I felt his style where he uses one line to create an illustration worked well since it showed the interconnectedness of those in need with the greater community. I took one of the concepts he sent and broke it into two different illustrations, using one on the cover and one on the inside.
