wall street journal: small business, big innovation

tiny people holding a giant lightbulb! a mini illustration (microstration? millustration? petit dessin?) for the wall street journal’s small business, big innovation competition. i enjoy working in this icon-like style, parsing the drawing down, seeing how well these little dudes and their bulb hold up at different sizes. that said, i would have preferred if they had decided to run this illustration on the side of a building, or projected it on the moon instead of putting it on their website, but so it goes.
