Wrapping up the last few assignments before taking off for a short vacation. It was a hectic couple of weeks, but it is nice to know that I managed to get a lot of work under my belt before leaving, and nice to know I have a few more assignments lined up to keep me busy once I get back. The illustration above was for Barrons, and the one below was for the Far Eastern Economic Review, both of which have been put on hold for the time being due to various circumstances.
And I also had a couple of my ongoing 'health care' spots for the Wall Street Journal over the past three weeks. A couple of unusual topics, one on a bowel stimulation device (above), and another on eye canal procedures.
Another new development when we return in a few weeks, is that we've been talking about updating my computer system, which has been a faithful workhorse for the past five years, but is starting to show signs of age. Hopefully the changeover is relatively painless.
