Thomas James – Conceptual Collaboration with The Portland Mercury

This project was a collaboration of sorts with Art Director Justin “Scrappers” Morrison of The Portland Mercury. In fact, it pretty much always feels like a collaboration with Scrappers, which is why I love working with him so much.

Basically, I created the concept of the podcast microphone as a dandelion of sorts, as well as the actual images of the microphone and podcast “seed pods”, and Scrappers created the background and layout design. It was a fun change to supply pieces of the overall image, rather than the final image itself, and even more enjoyable to focus heavily on the conceptual side of things.
