Just got the Sunday Times travel magazine through the door this morning which has one of my illustrations in it. Quite a dry article on exchanging money on holiday, it was still quite a nice job to do, (with all the pieces that I fitted together like a jigsaw.)
My original illustration had more contrast in it with the hands more of the central feature, but the art director wanted to make the locations more obvious - its often tricky putting the clients ideas in, and making it work as an illustration.
I was fairly pleased with the result, and it is always nice to be in such a good magazine.

Some photos I took whilst away in Almeria Spain. This region has been used as on location by many hollywood films and spaghetti westerns because of its similarity in landscape to the American west - it is windswept and desert like. It was also the place that John Lennon wrote Strawberry fields forever whilst filming 'How I won the war'
