Literally free. I did not get paid but was told that it is important to "have stuff published" by the head of our illustration department. I was also told that it would be "a great piece for my portfolio."
Anyway, the article was for Lake Oconee Living, a little local magazine. It was about all of the grass drying up on local golf courses. Working with the art director, we came up with the concept of a man traveling through a desert golf course with his camel serving not only as his golf cart but also as his caddie.
