This is an image I did a little while back for the cover of Manufacturing Automation - a trade magazine about machine design and technology for the industrial workplace. The concept was suggested by the art director and I think it was a really successful piece. I especially love the warpy perspective. I achieved it by putting my map sketch into photoshop and playing with it until I got the desired result.
During the process there was a little bit of a hot potato game going on between the workers as I was told to swap and change items on their person. The linear underwent quite a few revisions until the right number of females, males, ethnics, and trades were accounted for.
I'm still waiting on a printed version. Should be exciting to see since this magazine is printed at a large size.
