Before Christmas I was commissioned by the Guardian for one of their business supplements. It was a cover illustration. It was also the tightest deadline i have ever had to work with…which is the reason I am so proud of the outcome. It is by no means my best work, a lot of the finer details I usually like to add to my work were left out but there are elements of the image that I really like.
I received an email from the AD at around midday stating that the deadline was 4 o’clock that same day…I was initially put off by the lack of time, as I didn’t think that in short of 4 hours I could get an Image done and that it would be one that myself and the Guardian would be happy with. However, I also like a good challenge so I said “Let’s bloody do it!”
So I did! it was a very stressful scramble to meet the 4pm deadline, But in the end I made it with about 15 minutes to spare.
