The production of The Washington City Paper is back in DC where it belongs and Jandos Rothstein is back as its art director. Jandos along with Pete Morelewicz, who also served as AD for the City Paper, are two of my favorite Art Directors. Their comments are never compromised by personal taste, always enhance the concept, and have always made my work better.
Just Like Old Times at the Washington Times
Client: The Washington City Paper
Art Director: Jandos Rothstein
I was glad to find out that Jandos is back in the drivers seat and happy that he contacted me for the cover image of his return issue. The concept sketches and final illustration for last weeks cover are attached. The story is about the fall of The Washington Times -- The Capitol City's outspoken voice of conservative politics and leading example of yellow journalism.
