Give the Devil his Due

Outake concept rough and final 2-page spread illustration I did many moons ago for Wired Magazine. The Creative director won in the end and ´The Temple of Amazonia’ was chosen as the title for the article. Even back then, I thought the guy was kind of a piece of shit while everybody was hailing him as some phoenix risen from the ashes of the dot com bust. My devil metaphor blew right over their heads along with the whole bag of cats metaphors I had loaded into the image. Below is the final art that went to print.
