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.

Surveillance

It's an uneasy subject. Something that we live with everyday. We connect, we locate, search and communicate. Ask any question and a response pops up immediately. Remember that obscure reference but can't place it? It's right there on your mobile device.

On a personal level, I have serious misgivings about carrying around a tracking device that can plot your every move, your shopping patterns and queries, who your friends are and what you 'like'. But it's a part of our modern lives. What are the implications, good and bad?

What's your comfort level?

 

I worked on this full-page article for Security Management magazine. Thanks to art directors Roy Comiskey and Elizabeth Lankes.

Covering your Assets

I could really use this technology. I lose my keys all the time. RFID tracking allows manufacturers and businesses to locate and track their assets during the manufacturing process, in transit and in storage or inventory.

I decided to keep things simple in this illustration, showing location in different context through the supply chain. I used an isometric perspective so that the message wouldn't get lost in the details. I have worked with art diretor Roy Comiskey on a number of tech-related articles, and I always enjoy the challenge of bringing new elements to the work.

Here's the piece in the final layout.
