MARCH 31, 2007
My first assignment through the mighty Illoz.com came in on Tuesday from a US airline magazine. The Design Coordinator was very apologetic about the tight deadline (Friday) but shouldn't have been- three days seems quite a luxury for me. The subject was a quiz testing readers' knowledge of Asia so there was lots of potential for detail. The scene has a couple of characters in the foreground (westerner unsure how to tackle a huge hunk of meat he's being served up just with chopsticks) and various elements from the quiz filling out a kind of Ukiyo-e (well- as interpreted by me) style mural beyond. The whole thing couldn't have gone more smoothly.
