This article was published last june 1 and was posted as one of the Best Pages of the Week in the paper. even before i finished this illustration, the idea i came up for the story already made me proud of myself. it is important that i come up with something really simple yet hit the topic big time.
the article is still related with the recession and the euro hullaballo. it's always safe to take thing literally yet produce it in a symbolic way. Srimani, the designer of the page came up with the idea on running the text inside the helmet and the smoke that came out from the gun. it was just perfect. the day before this was published, my design director told us that this will be the best page for paper the next day. oh well i just blushed! :D
added some texture to polish the look.
