NY Times: Shady Tax Filer

I got the chance to do a piece for today’s Op Ed page. Some stories get to you more than others, and this was one I really wanted to do justice to. You can read the full version here: NY Times. Thanks to Matt Dorfman for the great assignment!

Prudential: Day One Stories

Yesterday I posted about this, but I wanted to take a fresh crack at it with some gifs! These are for an interactive campaign that I’ve been working on for Prudential. There is a whole site full of these little animations that I couldn’t include here, so definitely check them out! Also, you can see some sketches and storyboards here. A big thanks to the Influence Interactive team and Michael Sylvie for the great assignment!

Prudential: Day One Stories

Back in the fall I got the chance to work with Influence Interactive on an interactive campaign for Prudential Retirement Funds. I took some screenshots of the site that are posted here, but take a look at the actual site because the whole thing is animated and parallaxed to the max: Jessica’s StoryChris’ Story. Also, you can see some sketches and storyboards here. A big thanks to the Influence Interactive team and Michael Sylvie for the great assignment!

Wall Street Journal: Cool Antiques
I had some fun with this one for the Wall Street Journal this week. The illustration was for a story about a new website that is trying to market antiques to a younger demographic. Thanks to Christian Drury for the great assignment!

NY Times: Snow Delays
For this week’s “On The Road” Joe Sharkey writes about this winter’s record number of weather related flight cancelations (it is quickly approaching 100,000, with another week of storms on the horizon,) and weighs benefits of the recently implemented  DOT rule which imposes hefty fines on airlines that keep passengers waiting on the runway for more than two hours, but is also partly to blame for the uptick in cancelations. Thanks to Bob Goetz for the assignment!

D Magazine: Your Guide to Medical Tourism
I stumbled across some old Golden Book Encyclopedias at the junk shop a few weeks ago and have been wanting to do one of these illustrated maps ever since. (Seriously, if you are looking for a lifetime worth of great illustration ideas track those bad boys down. You won’t regret it.) I got the chance to put my pseudo geography to the test for D Magazine. This was for a story on an upwards trend in domestic medical tourism. Savvy patients with deep (or deeper than mine) pockets have been going to Europe and South America to take advantage of lower medical costs and now some US hospitals are trying to get in on the action. A big thanks to Hamilton Hedrick for the great assignment!

Kiplinger’s: The Age of the Podcasting 
Hot off the presses! Over my winter break I worked on this illustration for a story on the wide world of streaming audio content. I was happy to have an opportunity to draw both a plaid shirt AND a sailing vessel (two of my favorites,) and to be able to pay tribute to my single greatest source of cultural input. Thank you podcasts! AND, thank you Stacie Harrison for the great assignment!
