Illustration by Robert Fawcett.

Robert Fawcett was an illustrator that I admired at the beginning of my career. I admired his drawing and recently began to be impressed by the design structure of his illustrations. Below is a study of the design of the above illustration, which I made using red marker over a black and white print . I will be giving my illustration students an assignment to diagram one of his illustrations they can find online. In my diagram I see directional movement to the man and woman’s hands, and shapes that draw your eyes to the man and woman in this story.
