I recently did some work for a Canadian Magazine. The article that I illustrated was six pages long about how to encourage people to thrive in their jobs.
There were a couple of interesting real world examples, notably a pilot whom takes photos of pets in the hold to keep the owners happy, buys passengers fruit, and generally does nice things. Unfortunately the magazine has been pulled by the publisher and it seems unlikely that it will be in print again. I was really happy with this series of drawings. The style was purposely very relaxed and pretty much straight out of the sketchbook.
There is very little difference between my roughs and the final pieces, with only a few tweaks and bit of colour added.
