Meat & Potatoes

As a free-lance illustrator I do a lot of work like this, for all kinds of sponsored magazines and such. in fact, it is my meat and potatoes. A lot of this work never makes it to my portfolio, not because it's bad, but because the subject matter is ofttimes a bit bland (to put it mildly) The briefings for these illustrations are usually very tight and don't leave a lot of room for interpretation. I like doing it though, it really makes me draw stuff I wouldn't normally draw. Oh yeah, and did I mention it pays well?
