Army Men

Business North Carolina

A fun project this week from North Carolina Business magazine. The Art Director wanted to use the ‘classic army men toys’ and have them dropping into town with ‘dollar’ parachutes (click on the image above for a larger version). Since I was unable to find the reference material for the angles I had in mind, I decided to go out and buy a set of these figures so I could pose the reference shots myself. I eventually found them at a local toy store, but the ‘classic soldiers’ were only available in a jumbo bucket (which also included tanks, plastic rocks, and air support), so it is a wonder I managed to get this job done, once I tore myself away from playing with these guys on my desktop.
