PLANSPONSOR EUROPE & MAGRITTE

Well here is a fun update. I recently did the cover for Plansponsor Europe for an article regarding the status of pensions in Greece.  Hopefully with the art you can tell what kind of shape that system is currently in…

This is my first cover for Plansponsor and needless to say I was really excited when the opportunity came up. It’s a real honor to follow some of the people I look up to the most in this business on such a stage.

Also, I don’t normally share the sketch stage, but hey what the hell, these were some of the other thoughts…

In other news, I was walking home the other day, late late afternoon to be exact, and as I crossed McGolrick Park I suddenly found myself experiencing a real life Magritte painting.  Magritte is one of my favorite artists of all time, (ask me why…thats for another post) as you can imagine it was a rather surreal moment. yes, pun intended. It brings into question, maybe Magritte was just painting what he saw? Just sayin…

    Hi JB! Great job on the illo.
    Coming form Greece, things are very dodgy over here indeed.. Pentions are just one of a multitude of problems.. I find however that
    practicing the art of illustration always takes my mind of things..
    Take care!
