So much for a Thanksgiving break... I had three jobs land in my lap in the few days before Turkey. That meant working solid over the weekend and into the next week but hey, I wont complain. It'll keep the heat on for while. The three assignments are as thus...
Spot for Martin Colyer at Reader's Digest UK. A new client for me and a little gem of a job. How often to you get to draw a guy singing ABBA with a bear? Not very often. Tons of fun!
Next up we have a another cover image for the fine Rachel Jefferson at In These Times. The cover story was of a family torn apart by immigration law. The Mother was deported and her children taken into foster care here in the US. You'll be glad to hear the story ends well with them all being reunited, but only after a long and difficult fight. As a Dad I dont mind saying, scary stuff. On a lighter note, I'm looking forward to seeing it dropped onto the cover's color-field with type and such in place. It should look great and I'll post a pic when I get a copy.
Lastly but not leastly, we have a full page for the music mag Under The Radar. Wendy Redfern wanted an illo to go with their feature on musician's day jobs. Well, it just so happens that cool DJ guy "GirlTalk" was once a Biomedical Engineer. Instead of spinnin' records in the club, he be spinnin' a centrifuge with plasma samples yo!
