Igor Morski photomanipulation and digital painting
March 13, 2017 Saturday’s ‘Lightening Strikes’ Good Weekend cover featured an X-ray feel image with lungs created out of lightening strikes. The feature associated was about the Victorian storms that caused tragically fatal asthma attacks, the storm that became a freak medical emergency in Melbourne’s hospitals. Art Director Tara Axford had a vision in her mind’s eye of what she wanted to illustrate the cover story. Igor Morski’s photomanipulation and digital painting enabled that vision to come to life and for the cover to look like a photographic image. Hours can be spent trawling though a photo library in search of the perfect image, and it can often end with something not quite right.. Illustrators like Igor can create an idea that cannot be photographed in a real life situation.
