For an article on Inverse: The Oral History of The Lawnmower Man.
Shocking though this may be, lawnmowers hadn’t been on my wishlist of subjects to illustrate(*). And yet! I came up with a few other concepts sans gardening machinery, but I thought this one would be fun and I'm glad the editor agreed. I love that about commissioned work: getting to learn about topics and developing ideas I wouldn't have reached on my own.
* Though actually I love mechs, robots, spaceships, sci-fi contraptions, steampunk, etc. My comfort zone has long been organic forms, but I’d like to eventually rectify the lack of these things in my portfolio.
