Treats Magazine Layout Preview!

April 17, 2012

Here is a preview of my layout in Treats! Issue #3. My concept was based on a scene from the movie The Ice Storm. It is an incredible movie about suburban adults in Connecticut in the 1970’s. I did my own version of the key-party scene, where the married couples switch partners according to whose keys they pull out of a bowl. A totally  disturbing and fascinating  social situation that I wanted to explore visually. And Treats! magazine gave me the go-ahead to do it! I wanted it to be a west coast version, and more lighthearted and sexy than the movie but still show the range of emotions that occur, as well as take it much farther along into the scenario.  The issue is out today at Book Soup!
