How to make a real estate story not boring? Well here's my shot at it.
For MillionaireAsia, art directed by Raymond Ho of Eight Custom Media in Hong Kong.
Story was about mainland Chinese snapping up flats in Hong Kong.
Here's the roughs I sent, I obviously was favoring with the top one, but Raymond preferred the bags as the opener which was fine, but I knew the composition would need work.
A color study and a prelim drawing.
Luckily I got to draw the flower lady half page and another spot as well.
Working for Hong Kong clients brings back good memories for me. I lived in Guangzhou (just north of Hong Kong) for a few months teaching english in 1996. It wasn't my plan to leave my art studies and go to China and teach english, but I was dating this girl and she went. So I followed her to see if our relationship would work out. It did.
