Cover illustration for Exame magazine.
Exame is the most important business magazine in Brazil.
The cover article was about the biggest challenge of the next elected president of Brazil: the size of the state.
The illustration took several iterations before the final, more neutral color scheme.
It began with a kind of depressing pallete, with a blue tone with redish shadows, but it wasn't the mood of the article, so they asked me for a red version, without the little man in the background.
After sending them the red, more opressive/agressive version, they changed the tone of the text again, and asked me to neutralize the overall mood.
