Getting a job from Newsweek is really exciting - the turnaround is quick and the magazines are on all the newstands immediately. The article
was about researchers discovering ways to erase memories. It's always a huge plus to get a really fascinating article and to be genuinly interested in the subject.
Here is a quote from Newsweek, "Memory enhancement is all the rage today with companies promising to sharpen our mental skills through a host of brain games and exercises. But what if you want to forget? What if some horrific experience--a car accident, rape or military event--haunts you, stops you from holding down a job, or interferes with relationships? Today, a small group of researchers are exploring both the science and medicine of forgetting."
The initial job was for a full page illustration and two spot illustrations. Then the full page changed to a half page. Then about an hour before the deadline it changed back to a full page.I experienced a little of the whirlwind that Dan, the art director, goes through in a typical week. Their expert photoshoppers added a little more background to the top for the final layout.
