In a year that ran the gamut from high to low and back, a frenetic few months left me little chance to post so, here is a roundup of a few jobs that didn't make me want to kill myself.
When the lights went out in Mumbai
Nothing is more fun for me than a job with a quick deadline. The less time to torture myself with procrastination, the better. This one came in on Monday afternoon and needed to be done before I went to bed Tuesday evening, time enough for a short panic, quick rough, and 7 hours of noodling.
Imbibing Blindly on an Alcoholic Adventure
Some clever copywriting and equally creative art direction gave me this chance to do fake beer, whiskey and wine labels that spelled out the headline for a spirited article.
More multiple labels, this time in the genre of ski resort tags.
I tightened up this cover with a great big wrench and added sparks courtesy of an MIG welding apparatus.
Film Noir redux
And finally, a sultry, spirited "Spellbound" to accompany the enchanting Krysten Ritter.
