Visual Essay: Salon Joey
This illustration was heavily inspired by reportage art and the ability to tell stories through images. It focuses on a local business owner and includes bits of his day-to-day work as well as his journey to where he is now. With the illustrations there is an interview with him, in which he candidly explained who he is and how he came to own a salon in Kutztown. To keep the high-end feel that he tries to achieve in his workplace, I based the illustration style off of vintage Vogue covers from the 20s-40s.
