The Last Empire

FEBRUARY 13, 2008
The cover...Small because I've yet to get a copy.
Some jobs are a breeze. Some are hard work. This cover for the current issue of Mother Jones was hard work. The assignment was to do a homage of the movie poster for The Last Emperor. It's a beautiful poster and movie. The article by By Jacques Leslie discusses the fact that for years, America has pushed China to make its economy more like ours. Now the planet is about to pay the price. The child is now a young kid in a track suit and the sky is not golden but factory and poison filled. Every inch took hours. Inside the issue Steve Brodner has his year in picture featured and readers are re-directed to his Drawger site. Nice.
