The Usual Suspects
Most of the work in these first few weeks of November were courtesy of a few of my 'regular clients', and I thank my lucky stars for them every day. The illustrations on the top half of this post are all for the Wall Street Journal. The illustration above was for the bi-monthly 'aches & claims' column which I have been doing for going on seven years now. This was a rather nice one, so I've posted it a little bigger than usual (they normally appear in the paper around the 1x2 inch size - not always in color).
The illustration to the left, for the same client, was one of two illustrations for an article about Medicare and drug plans. The other was a small 'logo/icon' to go with the title 'the medicare maze'.
And very soon after, for the same client, I had a black and white 'collage' illustration, also having to do with medicare and elder care. This was a longer horizontal, and ran along the top of a couple of columns (pictured below)
I also had a few assignments over the past few weeks for the Chronicle of Higher Education. The first one had to do with internet access and providers who are starting to police and restrict usage amounts. The next two, which are appearing in a special supplement, have to do with University Professors and salaries.
