Apr08 illustration of the month

For the cover of this year’s Home & Garden section of The Times, my editor wanted a photo package with teasers to the main story, as well as the accompanying web content.

I started by picking the photo that I thought had the most visual pop. As I placed more and more photos on the page, I knew what I was shooting for. I wanted the grouping of the photos to have a modern feel.

Inside the section, I made the color wheel to go with Tamara’s story.

I meant to save the sketch my editor gave me for what he had in mind for this cover. Alas, I must have trashed it. Just know that I worked wonders.
