i believe i can fly...
did a few pieces for HR mag recently - heres a full pager that went through a couple of steps -
The piece was about flextime work, and the freedom it grants workers from the clock. because its fun to paint birds i decided i'd make this bird fairly realistic - to really push that super graphic juxtaposed against realistic kick i've been on lately. Mari, the wonderful AD who i've worked with a number of times now thought that maybe the feet were making it look too real, and a little freaky. she's probably right, so i took to photoshop to take them out. We then adjusted the background colour, as the cover had the same yellow in it, and we didnt want things to get confusing. Not sure which one I like best, maybe still the yellow one - but im sure that the revised version works best for Mari, so I'm happy with that!
