Terrorism 16yrs After 9/11

For Wall Street Journal on how terrorists keep coming back even 16 years after 9/11.

At first the direction was to do something with the shadows of the twin towers and terrorism.

More shadows ideas requested, but it still wasn't working. No problem.

Instead we tried to focus on the point of the story that the terrorists keep on coming back. And the respawning heads was chosen.

I always like to send a tight color sketch first, and good thing, the terrorist deemed too swarthy.

So I toned down the eyeliner, in the line work before painting.
