Uncle E. Neuman

Spot illustration for MAD magazine's 'Potential Consequences of a Long-Term Government Shutdown' Alfred E. Neuman as Uncle Sam for MAD Magazine

I drew this using a traditional ink wash with digital overpainting to try and emulate (to some degree) J.M. Flagg's iconic 1917 'I Want you' poster.  I like the idea of keeping the rougher finish on the edges that Flagg employed.
