Here’s to 2013, Mario Zucca for Beutler Ink
If you want to look back on 2013, then look no further than this one drawing that sums up the year in one take.
Here’s to 2013 was drawn by freelance illustrator Mario Zucca for content marketing firm Beutler Ink. It depicts almost 90 events that Beutler Ink asked Zucca to document, from the Edward Snowden revelations to Miley Cyrus’ twerking to the failure of the HealthCare.gov website.
So how did Zucca manage to get everything in there? A lot of planning. As Zucca explains on his blog, he put the events in categories and started figuring out where they would be placed in the Times Square-like setting of the drawing. He drew a map of where everything would go, then penciled in the details of the people and events.
