Impeachment

Illustration for Kelly Peck at the Wall Street Journal.

Cathartic experience drawing this. The image speaks for itself.

Heavy Thinkers

I saw the movie 'Shape of Water' and I loved the machine aesthetic of the sets. I collect old technical journals and I mined the images for some heavy industrial drawings and got to work. I haven't had a lot of creative time recently, I just finished a major children's book project and a lot of editorial work.

Here are the images in the series, these are all two colour transparent images on an warm background. I really enjoyed working on these, and I kept the series rolling, longer than I would have anticipated. It's great to create flow and get swept up by an idea that carries you along. I don't know where I am going with this yet, I may be creating a series of riso prints. Stay tuned.

High Alert

I worked on this cover for the OPC Register last month, about the lingering effects of a traumatic events in our schools. Given the events following the shooting at Marjory Douglas Stoneman high school in Florida, it feels even more relevant than ever. Our students deserve a safe environment for learning. These events overshadow and eclipse the day to day routines and focus that is required for our children to achieve success.

I worked on an assignment in 2013 for Phoenix magazine about the devastating effects of guns and gun violence in schools. I never would have imagined anyone advocating teachers to be carrying weapons and using them in a classroom situation.

I hope that the passion and debate about the rightful place of guns can affect positive change.

Robots on the go

Finished this piece for Wall Street Journal's investment report - retirees test drive robo-advisors. I really love drawing robots and I created a wheeled bubble bot for this piece. Thanks to art director Orlie Kraus for the call on this assignment!

Another recent assignment for German magazine Okonomie about drone deliveries in urban areas. Apparently, there is a model for suspending distribution centers by airships and using drones for short hauls to customers in cities. The future is unfolding faster than you can order a pair of toe socks online.

One more image, although this one isn't about robots or drones but it is about technology - the Equifax data breach had far-reaching implications for millions of people.

Senator Ted Stevens called the internet a series of tubes, so I played with that showing how security systems can fail. Unfortunately, another reason to lie awake at night.
