Features page of The Virginian-Pilot

I like the challenge of designing and illustrating features fronts at the Pilot. Everyone there enjoys weird ideas and they’re pretty much open and ready for anything.

Actually, the editors EXPECT you to do something weird, which can be hard to live up to sometimes…

Anyhow, this opinion piece by music writer Rashod Ollison called for a different treatment.

What he was saying is pretty well explained with the sequenced art and headline.

I’ve been illustrating for over 30 years and I don’t think I’ve ever used the same illustration twice to say two different things.
