I've been lucky to work with Bruce Hansen and Rob Wilson at Playboy for almost 10 years now, and lately on a more regular basis, for a men column.
The size is close to a quarter page, more or less a square. Have no idea why, but I've always liked to compose images inside square.
Since the assignment is kind of recuring, I try to find ideas and images that do not depart from the previous ones, even if subjects have nothing in common.
Here are some of my latest contributions
«How to turn your dick into a Richard»
«Dating your Ex»
Besides the column, I sometimes do an image for a feature working as a spread, usually a short story by some pretty good writters; previous ones included John Updike, Stephen King, Nabokov, Jay Mc Inerney...
The last one was by Richard Powers; it was about a retired engineer on the Voyage space programm, for whom the past was more alive than the present, and that nobody could save from oblivion.
