I Put a Bird on Something for Variety Magazine


I got a call from Art Director Cheyne Gately for a quick turnaround illustration for Variety Magazine. This was for a story about bringing satellite TV to the internet and mobile devices. A simple and straightforward approach seemed best, although I thought the addition of a bird hanging out on the satellite dish added a little more visual interest. The bird was killed because of an understandable concern that it might be seen as a Twitter reference, but I still prefer the feel of this version.
