Time Out Chicago Illustration

My recent job for Time Out Chicago magazine. This is a full page illustration on restauranteur Jerry Kleiner. He's owned a bunch of restaurants and clubs, which are now all closed down because of his many debts and 11 lawsuits. He's a slick character who thinks he can get away with not paying venders, rent and produce.

The concept of this piece was to incorporate Kleiner's intensely colored, over-the-top decor. He's offering a plate of one of his meals and is being bound by the swirling mess of debt he's in.

I must say this was a tricky piece to do, quite challenging since Kleiner's restaurant decor has so many different clashing colors and patterns, I didn't know which ones to use. All in all, the art director was happy and loved the piece, the end. And on to the next one!
