The Oath
posted:
pastel and ink on paper, 14" x 9"
This is an illustration for this week's New Yorker magazine, accompanying a review of a documentary titled "The Oath", about the life of Osama bin Laden's personal bodyguard, who currently lives in Yemen.  For these assignments, I typically watch the trailer, which can be viewed online here, search for photo reference, and read whatever I can find about the subject.  The review is now on The New Yorker's website here.
