Handle editorial artwork ~ Part 1

The Good Life was invited to be guest designers for Handle Magazine‘s “The 30 most important players of the last 30 years” feature. The November-December issue is out now. Pop into your nearest newsagent and grab Australia’s premier basketball publication.

More pieces over the coming days. It was a mammoth editorial piece with one page to each player profile.

In our first installment we present to you: Kobe Bryant and “Vanity”. Tune into the soap opera on Channel Black Mumba, right after Gossip Girl and the The Hills. Our Wacom tablet definitely got a workout with this piece!!

    Have a look…
