I love illustrating articles about food and exercise, so I was excited to take this job from Paul Gonzales for a Los Angeles Times Health Cover.
Story was on epigenetics, basically you can influence your DNA by diet and exercise.
I favored the woman tying her running shoes, but Paul had better vision and choose the jump roper, which turned out much better in the end, thanks Paul!
In the rough I had the typical overused skinny sports bra model, but I felt a more plump figure would be more look more interesting. And somehow from the tight sketch to the finish, she unintentionally turned out looking slightly like Oprah.
