Evening Outlook Covers

Dean and Ron Funk ran a nice community newspaper before selling off.  These works primarily complimented a critic's opinion in entertainment or politics or to sell advertising in a special section.  Ideas came from reading the feature story and roughing out a quick pencil sketch for the editor or writer.  In film terms, I was looking for the "million-dollar shot" that best captured the story's tone without revealing everything.  Like magazines, these weekly or seasonal tabloid covers were meant to quickly splash a visual to catch your eye.

Most artwork was drawn in an hour or two, and up to a week ahead of publication.  Layouts where artwork blended into type were drawn ahead, then the type was pasted down, corrected, and camera shot to plate for press up to the last second.  Covers running color went through a series of adjustments in the pressroom to get the colors clean as possible. 

The Evening Outlook press crew were the real artists who made these works dance as brightly as possible on a page every day.  If you were a press operator staring at a million miles of black newsprint streaming through harsh steel, screaming press rollers all week, wouldn't a little bright spot of color or funny drawing brighten your day...? GIF
