The crew in Skokie wanted to present the boss with a present in observation of the company’s 40th year. The boss was in Connecticut (I think) and I drew him from photos sent by email. Then I went to the Skokie office to draw the top eight managers in person. After that, we worked together on the evolving concept for this drawing. Initially the boss was the largest element on the page, but eventually his yacht became dominant as a symbol of the company. All the symbols found their proper expression: ship, captain, captain’s hat with anchor, captain’s wheel, powerful sails, wind in sails, clear waters, birds of optimism in the sky. It was an interesting project. Thank you, Elizabeth. Congratulations all!
