Hillary's Last Thread


Another spot illustration for the Weekly Standard. Got the email for the job at 2am GMT on Wednesday night, again I was up. I think I'm getting a sixth sense for these.

This one went right to the wire. The premise was simple, and I think I was deceived into thinking it was going to be a simple job, Hillary hanging from a thread, how simple can it be? Turns out, not so simple. It would take too long to list the changes and progressions, so to cut a long story short, the final I submitted had her arms behind her head, with the thread coming out behind her hair. All was fine, until the editor pointed out that it reminded him of a noose. This was a couple of hours before deadline. Changes were made, all are happy.
The changing continued to the end. Just got the page back, and they've decided to rotate her and reduce the thread.

Thats a very clever idea, I love simple concepts that work well like this. That Jack Nicholsen is great too, the shapes are very appealling. Keep it up.

Impresionante!

Es claramente "La caída de Hillary". Estoy impresionado, por esta, y por Jack Nicholson más abajo.

Eres un genio! Enhorabuena.
