Pesky Suckers


July, 2011 / Whenever summer rolls around, I start thinking about mosquitoes and how much I hate them and the newspaper usually indulges me. I thought of the red sucker pun immediately. Luis Vilches, a fellow designer, helped me photograph it on a light table so the bubbles in the candy show up. I made the bites with watercolor. Designer Stacy Addison put the page together, along with the cool illo up top. Pilot writer Diane Tennant supplied the really wonderful skeeter info/trivia.
