Back to Normal
After what seems like a solid month of working on the same project day in and day out, it has been nice the past week to get back to spots and quick deadline work. The above spot was one of four that I did this week for the Chronicle of Higher Education. These are for an ongoing series of articles about election issues that I've been doing over the past several months for this publication. The other illustrations in the series are pictured below, and were on subjects such as: Nuclear Proliferation, Pre-emptive Conflicts, Promoting Democracy and the Unipolar World Power Structure. And speaking of the Chronicle, I received a 'fan email' from one of their readers last week, which happens so rarely, that it is always a special treat. Hard to believe that I've been contributing to this magazine for over 15 years now. Where does the time go?
Over the past month, I've also had a few illustrations in the Wall Street Journal. The two color pieces above were for a semi-regular feature regarding dubious health claims (they don't always appear in color, but I finish them out that way routinely just in case), and the black and white piece to the left was for one of the Weekend Edition charts, something about certain stocks doing well in this current economic downturn.
Another illustration for the Chronicle that appeared a couple weeks ago is pictured below. Something to do with 'quality control' for european college degrees.
Over the past weekend, I had a couple illustrations for the Far Eastern Economic Review, a portrait, and a travelog piece on a certain Korean landmark.
Then most recently, I had an assignment from Barrons on China's debt load (above).
