An illustration for Frisbee games. I was assigned to create a photograph for a story on Frisbee games for the cover of “Weekend.” I wanted to illustrate the Frisbee as a sports classic. That led me to thinking about other classics, like Greek gods. I spotted what I wanted in an art history book — the Greek discus statue. I knew this pose/concept had been used before, so I wanted to throw a twist into it to make mine fresh. Knowing that Frisbees can be very colorful, I decided to create a monotone scene that would emphasize its color. I had the model painted head to toe in gray and photographed him on a “column” made of patio stones. The monotone scene made the pink Frisbee even more dramatic. 1999
