My Latest Illustration for a Hotel Magazine

I was assigned to illustrate a Lodging magazine article that explained strategies for hotel staff to recognize signs of disruptive or nefarious activity among room renters, and head it off before it becomes a problem. The process is called Behavioral Detection and Analysis, or BDA.

The editor suggested the idea of a toolbox, since terms like intuition, visibility, closed circuit TV and signage represent ‘tools’ that hotel staff can use to be aware of disruptive activity. But tools enclosed in a box would not make the best illustration, so I decided to draw them on a pegboard to open the scene up. I sketched a hotel employee handing out the tools to other staff members.

With a few suggestions from the editor, I went directly to the finished illustration, using prisma pencil and acrylic washes on cold press illustration board –
