Sketch Pad: Money's July Cover
"Getting it down on paper" as described by Money design director Neil Jamieson
The first sketch:
Photo director Ryan Cadiz and I started playing around with the idea of "construction" to illustrate the cover story concept of "building wealth", which took us down the somewhat predictable alley of construction sites/heavy machinery
...which became a bit more cover/news stand friendly when we started paying with composition (...heavily inspired as ever by Mr Lois!) and what to do about the tablet version?
...the tools idea was okay but we felt it wasn't quite "wealthy" enough...seemed a little too "DIY", so we started trying to figure out the engineering behind the object and how to build it...for real...so we started thinking about joints, seams, materials and finishes...we also of course took into account how to finish off the "story" for our tablet edition.
...we shot a second image of the pieces joined together...or fully "built" for tablet to finish off the "arc"
