"When I Forgot" Book Review Illustration

May 14th, 2009

Here’s background on the Book Review illustration from last weekend.

What was cool about this project was the Art Director, Nicholas Blechman, was the one to actually suggest a comic format. It fit the bill perfectly, as I felt that the story couldn’t easily summed up in a singular image. Nicholas is one of those Art Directors that I feel I learn something from every time I do a job with them.

I actually can’t stand this next one… I always tell students to not send sketches they loathe…

The colour strategy for the final was icy cool blues with hits of “heat” and intensity.
