Hipster Ronald McDonald by Thomas Pitilli

This was a fun assignment. Las Vegas Weekly contacted me recently to illustrate a story about a new branch in the McDonald’s franchise called, Metro McDonalds debuting on the strip in LV. Complete with graffiti art murals, and a urban chic environment, Metro McDonald’s hopes to draw in a new crowd, so Ryan, the AD wanted me to show Ronald McDonald portrayed as a hipster, which I thought was a really funny idea. I spent some time living in Portland, OR (aka Portlandia), so I really channeled some of that experience into this piece! ” – Thomas Pitilli
