Sympathy for Noise

I was asked to illustrate an article about home-owners not showing sympathy for noisy craftsmen. The idea evolved from a photo of a man wearing sunglasses and ear protectors, to a baby wearing the same things for an added comedic effect, to finally an illustration with a mix of the two. For the background, the idea was originally to have a craftsman on a ladder, but eventually I found it better to have only one character as the focus of the composition.
Thanks to Martin and Lina for your help! The photos that we took of Simon in sunglasses were an important part of the process.
