Um...I do? I think?
Lindsey Turner for reading the story as she put it on the page and for not only signaling me that my original idea wouldn't jive, but for also helping me come up with a solid concept to match the actual story. Basically, the Amazon order fulfillment station(s) they're building in Chattanooga mean herald Amazon getting some special deals with the state of Tennessee that the other businesses in Tennessee don't find fair. Plus, there's some ther stuff about stepping on the TN constitution. To be honest I was having a "my brain's not working" kind of day and it really just didn't click.
The other illustration (which should actually appear at the very top) is my favorite from this week. It's about cutting the cost of your wedding. Well, not YOUR wedding. You might not be getting married. And if you are, someone as high-toned and fancy as yourself may not NEED to cut costs. Whatever. Anyway, the article is also about sustainable, eco-friendly, green weddings! But I was told to just focus on the cost cutting part. I'm really pleased with this one because I think my groom doesn't look like me. My male charactes always look like me...or so I'm told. I completely disagree. You know...apart from admitting to using my silhouette in that other illustration...for which you're welcome. :) Anyway AGAIN, I think he looks like a more handsome Nathan Lane. My bride looked like Jennifer Lopez at one point (by accident, of course) but during the inking stage some of her features changed slightly and she ended up looking like she does in print...which is cute...I think, anyway.
Someone say something about these things. If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm really just a child shouting out in a big ol' effort to be the center of attention. Only, I cuss more than most children and ride a pretty badass motorcycle.
