Magazine illos

Waaay way back in December 06 I posted a piece for a magazine article about the perils of illustration and fussy clients. Well it's finally getting published in Australian Creative magazine, along with the article written by the multitalented Matt Jackson.

Here are two new spot illustrations which are accompanying the main illo in the article. Once again exploring the problems of fussy clients, the power of the almighty dollar to buy the artist's ability to think for themselves, and the 'bastard child' that your artwork becomes when clients interfere unnecessarily.

love the first one, the guy's expression is classic, and the reaper dude - very dark crystal-esque :)

These are excellent - very funny. The inking on the second expecially is brilliant.

Thanks everyone. They were real fun to do.

PJ, good talking to you. Best of luck with the portfolio.

...and to any potential clients reading this...Despite my attitude towards clients in these pics, I'm very easy to work with. ;)

Brilliant work, Chris - and I'm sure you didn't need vast amounts of art "direction" to pull it off. Hopefully the contingent of Australian Creative's readership that hires an illustrator so they can draw-by-proxy will take note.

Though I doubt it.
