Spot Illustration for The Portland Mercury – A Spy in the House of Occupy Portland

I was excited to get a call this week to do my first editorial Illustration related to the Occupy Wall Street movement, or more specifically, Occupy Portland. In this case, the brief was for an article about a splinter group within Occupy Portland that is supposedly giving information to the police in order to get on good terms with the city. That, combined with the public nature of the protestors’ general assembly meetings, means that Portland police have to exert very little effort to keep up with current developments.

Thanks to Art Director Suji Allen for the call on this one.
