Illustration for Newsday, pre-K funding
Newsday asked me to illustrate an editorial on how much of the funding available for Pre-K classes in the LI area have gone unused. Why, might you ask? Turns out that schools are concerned that if they create a pre-k program and funding gets pulled, they end up bearing the expense; a gamble. I decided to use that angle, showing the croupier scooping the funds back, knocking the spelling blocks aside. Spelling blocks are not exactly original- but they worked with this idea.
