An Opener and 2 Spots about Airlines, and their ridiculous practice of charging extra for just about anything. I just love the beautifully naive ugliness of those passenger safety/emergency cards...
For Wirtschafts Woche.
This one's about how children these days tend to have fuller days than their old folks.
With more and more schools becoming places where the kid spends morning to night, learning, eating, playing, napping and all kinds of activities they may have done with their parents before. And how it might affect family life.
This one's also a prime example of how a lot of my concepts are fueled by sheer lazyness. I could certainly have drawn a whole wagonload of kids involved in various activities mentioned in the text. But then I didn't.
This is the whole image...
And the printed spread. Client was Frankfurter Allgemeine.
For the Wall Street Journal, about the Marquis de Condorcet, a french nobleman who was well known for his socially progressive views, which initially protected him from prosecution during the French Revolution and even gained him the office of Secretary of the new legislative assembly. He fell out of favour rather quickly though, not being willing to live up to the fanaticism demanded of him by the Jacobites. Hunted by the authorities, he became a refugee and spent moths in hiding in a friends attic. When the authorities finally caught up with him he went on the run again, and after two days in the wild, hunger eventually forced him to seek refuge at an inn. When the inn keeper asked for his order, he replied that he would like an omelet. How many eggs, the inn keeper asked, and Condorcet, not ever having set foot in a kitchen before, replied "twelve". Immediately the entire room was in an uproar over the aristocrat hiding among them, and he was dragged off to prison where he died that same night. On an empty stomach.
