An illustration for an article that discusses the ATOS reading system, which numerous schools in the US have used for years. ATOS "scientifically" allots points to books; the "tougher" the book, the more points. How a book receives its point allocation I still don't understand: Romeo and Juliet is four points while Gossip Girl is triple that amount. I worked on this illustration with Peter Ahlberg in 2009.
An article about the 2008 financial crisis and the negative impact of securitized loans. Art Direction by Gary Fogelson.

Talking With Your Fingers, 2012
An editorial Illustration I did for a blog in the New York Times called Draft.

The article I illustrated discussed different aspects of texting and why it is not destructive to language. Art Direction by Matt Dorfman.
All Purpose Pronoun, 2009
