Apocalypse not

newsWiredCover Mushroom cloud goes front page.

Another front page! This time for the American version of Wired magazine.

After receiving a call on a Monday night I started this project on short notice.
With little to no time of pre-production I managed to build the image of a mushroom cloud explosion around a project I worked on several years before. So even if the time frame of 3 production days sounded more than unlikely to be sufficient for this kind of project, I managed to complete it on time.

While the technical know-how was still available the cloud needed a complete rebuild in order to be able to come up with an animated version for the iPad version of Wired. I’m very excited to post this version very soon, too.

The September 2012 issue will reveal “Why the world won’t end in 2012 … or anytime soon. Hopefully they’ll be proven correct.
