Asset Management in the Land of Gods
Client: AD Jeremy Leung, Institutional Investor Magazine
Description: Working on editorial illustrations could go by rapid fire–I have a couple of days of inking and a day of digital coloring to complete the piece. I do love the intensity of the editorial workload for sure, but this project brought me even more fun and pure joy.
Why, you’d ask?
Well, because I got to draw elephants! I have a list of topics, themes, things, people that I would love to draw commercially someday, and they’re all quietly waiting for their own time to be picked!
So, my heart was melting dearly during my photo reference research for the elephants. They have wonderfully beautiful eyes… It’s a blessing to be paid to draw what I wanted to draw!
This piece became a vivid illustration for such a serious article, but I believe my job is to make a serious article more approachable and readable visually.
I love working with AD Jeremy, who has his own illustration practice and such a talented illustrator as well. I hope y’all enjoy this piece too!
