For the play "Native Son" for Chicago Magazine.
Alot of good illustration has already been done for it, so I felt challenged.
I thought an early scene with the metaphoric rat had some good visual potential.
The play is set in 1930's Chicago so I did a bit of history research for the skyline.
However, if I was to do this for a play poster, I wouldn't need to reference the theatre curtain.
So I would have done it like this.
