Los Angeles Magazine: Richard Scarry Homage

Los Angeles Magazine: Richard Scarry Homage For a recent issue of Los Angeles magazine, design director Steven Banks assigned illustrator Ben KIrchner to create a spread infographic that referenced classic children's book illustrator Richard Scarry. The result, "What Do People Do All Day?" features over 30 characters in Scarry style. There are even characters representing the editors and art directors of Los Angeles magazine!

(On the turn page see the complete spread from Los Angeles, and click to increase its size.)

Ben Kirchner has background on the assignment and sketches and details on his website here.
