Editorial Illustration for Uppercase Magazine 
This type of work has a deep history in political satire, especially.
(Google “political cartoons” to see what’s been and being done)
Editorial illustration, though, extends beyond the world of politics.
Every day, newspapers and magazines print illustrations alongside their articles to illuminate some element of the concepts for the reader. 
 
 Uppercase publishes books and magazines for the creative and curious.

This particular issue dealt with office supplies and the alphabet.

The idea of contorting a physical office supply into a letterform crossed our minds, but wasn’t particularly appealing.  Not only that – we wanted to use office supplies near & dear to our hearts.

One of our favorite old school office supplies is a pink pearl eraser. So we knew that would be squished in somewhere.

The eraser derived its name from the Pearl Pencil that Eberhard Faber was producing for the F. W. Woolworth company. The erasers featured a volcanic ash from Italy (pumice), that gave them their abrasive quality, along with their distinctive color and smell. Because of the eraser’s trademark pink color and surprisingly soft texture, Faber decided to name it the Pink Pearl.Fun In addition to creating the world’s most famous eraser, Eberhard Faber is also responsible for being the first to put an eraser (Pink Pearl) on the tops of its pencils.

A
While looking at office supplies- one comes to the conclusion a drafting compass looks like an
“A”.
 
B
The Apple mouse (couldn’t do our job without that). Was a must be included. When it’s not wireless – the cord made a great “B”.
 
C
Another love “Off brand number 2 pencil” Underlined, and completed our illustration.
Book Rings are under utilized holder of things together. Which made our “C”.
