Presenting my drafts for a book design, I prefaced the whole thing saying that since they hadn’t presented what their pictures might be the gray boxes were place holders, for pictures to be later added.
Client: “I really like it, but I just don’t see where your illustrations are coming from.”
Me: “They are place holders, you haven’t given me your approved photos yet.”
Client: “Can’t you just pick some out from google or something, for the book…?”
Me: “No, not really…”
Them: “Just whip up some illustrations, you know like real fast in illustrator or something, to really reflect the text.”
