Between us smuggling out a live craw fish from a restaurant, keeping the little dude from crawling away during our photo shoot and actually tasting one for the first time, I’d say this week’s Get Out experience was one of the most memorable.
Had two very concept-driven fronts two days in a row this week. On the left is an A1 about a gaming/hobby store that just opened up. My editor was adamant that he didn’t want boring photos of people in the store so I offered to make a board game full of little tidbits about popular games. On the right is the cover to our metro section. The story was suggestions for different Easter basket gifts. The art I was given was shots of books and random musical instruments so I thought I could come up with something a little more creative. I found a picture of an egg, then duplicated it with lots of colors, then illustrated certain eggs that corresponded to the different gift ideas.
I wish I could draw better/was a better artist. Then my concept ideas could go even further.
Something, er, different for this week’s Get Out.
Ready for an adventure?

It’s not perfect, but I am definitely serving some Virginia Pilot realness on today’s front page. Thanks to my bosses for letting me play.
