Joe Klein "In The Arena" for TIME
posted:
The most recent group of illustrations for Joe Klein's IN THE ARENA column for TIME. The opener was done with art director Cynthia Hoffman with whom I've had a fabulous working relationship with for many years. She's always been an incredibly receptive, perceptive and appreciative audience for my work. The headline for this this column was "Inspiration vs. Substance."
 The sketch for the first image. The shape of the piece was suggested by Cynthia (in grey). We had done the Billary piece that follows a week earlier and it was thought that there was a lot of white space hovering above the piece and that we could use it to better advantage.
"Billary." Also art directed by Cynthia Hoffman.
Billary sketch.
"Unity" sketch
"Unity" final.
 This was done with Tom Miller, another fantastic TIME art director. It was also done in record time. I think I had about an hour and a half, maybe two, from start to finish. Because the polls generally close late on Tuesday, Joe Klein sometimes has to write his column into the wee, wee hours. I got this one first thing Wednesday morning. The piece is always due early Wednesday afternoon. The concept here was simple enough, approved quickly and it was finished on time: McCain seemingly rising to the nomination with the sun but there's a dark cloud overhead.
 This is the latest. I was given one word, "Tailspin." Again art directed by Cynthia Hoffman.
