This was a short turn around job for the israeli magazine Kalkalist. I was called on thursday to come up with sketches for sunday (work day in israel!) and finished illustration for tuesday. The article dealt with the psychological mechanism behind pleasure - what causes pleasure to be generated in the brain. I used the idea of a volume knob to create a conceptual solution and allowed myself to have subtle sexual expression on the girl's face - though we don't know for sure what's causing the pleasure. Come tuesday morning I get a call from the designer - their main article was dropped and they are moving the 'Pleasure' article to the cover. they needed a quick cover image - to be done in a few hours. Since we didn't have much time we decided to go with something iconic that will float in white space and will be in the same vain as the first illustration, fastest cover I ever worked on...
