This was a cover and fold-out for the Directory of Illustration 2009. Dave Plunkert ofSpur Design is the designer. When I first turned it in, it had a more complex background. Dave liked the art, but I asked if there was anything he would change.
He said no. I asked again if he was sure. After working with the type, he suggested a black background. David is a very smart guy.
p.s. This is the first post on Planet Yang. Hopefully this will be the first of many.
