You know we love to set stuff on fire here at the studio, so when AARP asked for an image to illustrate the burning of tennis elbow, we were happy to oblige. Robin built the structure out of tennis paraphernalia (rackets, balls, grip tape and racket strings), then Adam got to burn it down.

Man oh man I love shooting for Esquire. Although I have to complain about having thirty egg mc muffins in my studio. They made the whole place smell like farts for days. Those things are seriously gross. But it worked out in the end, we got to wash them down with an old school ramos fizz. Which also smells a little odd. Oh well.
Below are the printed pages and some outtakes; a concept image on Stephen King, and an additional mc muffin option.
We had the pleasure of working with Runner’s World on an article about eating disorders and distance runners. Thank’s to Monty for naturally looking like he runs 10 miles a day.
