Client: we want you to draw this house, try to keep it close to the reference image we sent you. It’s very important that the house has to be recognisable to the test readers as a house in Uganda.
I did a bunch of research about Ugandan homes, they approved the final sketches, but when I sent them the finished drafts:
Client: Can you make it look more like a summer beach house?
Me: Uganda is kind of inland. If someone had told me that was the look we were going for, I would have done a lot of this differently…
Client: Well, we just thought of this now.
