the other global economy :: ode magazine

asaf :: from the subhead : "money sent home by immigrant workers makes a dramatic impact in developing countries."
which means kids in the philippines(and elsewhere) are growing up without a mom, because she is working oversea and sends money to support the whole family. the ironic tragedy is that the abandoned children often buy western product with this money instead of investing it in their own country products.
here are the sketches -

and final -

  3. I thought sketch number 2 is brilliant, touching and ironic in the same time. but you cannot expect too much form art-directors.

  9. The AD must love how resolved your sketches are. And in color no less!

    Like the color rendering in the finish, particularly the texture on the boat, and the dayglo pink boom box.

    My only criticism is that it seems a little more Tomer than asaf, but maybe that's leftover from working with your brother on that recent comic. It's a great image though!

  12. Hello. I can't say how much I liked this idea and how it all ended up into this wonderful illo. I'm posting it on my travel blog (fortunately it is in portuguese) and I would like to ask for your permission, proper credits will be displayed. Please contact me if there is any trouble. Congratulations
