It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I thought I’d catch up with a few recent pieces from a favourite regular client, the Penn Gazette.
'It rages like a forest fire through the nervous system' ...a description of the immune disease Neuromyelitis Optica, and the inspiration behind this piece for Reader's Digest Canada. My work appears monthly in the Case Study column.
Play is the Thing! I couldn't help but have a little fun with this assignment for Live Happy Magazine---the value of play as a part of the everyday. From gaming to hoops in the office, it's not just for kids anymore!
How's your workplace treating you? Penn Gazette takes a look at drones, robots and more...
New web portals connect student applications with the right university...
I've had the pleasure of working with RA Today for several years, so when it came time for a new re-design, it was an exciting challenge. A new colour palette & graphic approach to my work brings a fresh look to us both.
New work for Penn Gazette that focuses on a student's life-long experiences with living in close quarters.
New work for Penn Gazette, for an article entitled 'Bridges to Health'. Thanks to the Penn-based program Puentes de Salud, low-cost healthcare and services are now available to uninsured Philadelphia immigrant populations, many of whom are Latino. It was this connection that I wanted to celebrate in the art by bringing in the graphic, folk-art feel of Latin American embroidery.
Today's Parent recently commissioned me to create these sweet horoscope icons for the wee ones.
New work for Education Forum Magazine looks at the roles of teacher's & ECE's in the classroom...'different but equal'.
Owl Magazine gets a brand new look in their special re-launch issue! What fun it was to work on this tech trends spread... I'll have one of each please Santa, well, maybe I'll pass on the bouncing alarmclock ;-)
I've just illustrated a lovely article for Registered Nurse Journal about one nurse's experience as both a new mother and nurse to her newborn twins.
Just in time for summer holiday makers, tips for a safe journey in this month's Consumer Reports Magazine.
Where does your food come from? Numbers, info and images combine in this cheeky infographic with an editorial twist.
What can I say, some things just get me kinda jazzed...and infographics are one of those things.
They can be a perfect opportunity for a unique type of storytelling, creating a narrative that combines both design & illustration.
The last couple of issues of Reader's Digest (Canada) have been a joy to work on, with Art Director Annelise Dekker. Together we've explored each assignment thru the visual solution of an infographic. The first piece deals with brain exercise, keeping the mind nimble with daily challenges like learning a new language. The second piece illustrates the increase in prescription drug abuse.
This is a new approach for me, and I'm loving it...more infographics please...!
Consumer Report Magazine recently commissioned me to create a series of illustrations to accompany an article examining e-health, and the security of medical records on the web. The age of the digital doctor has arrived.
Like so many illustrators, I have a little wish list of clients, designers and art directors that I hope to one day work with. Louis Fishauf, one of Canada's most respected graphic artists & designers, has long been on that list.
An assignment came my way recently for Global Brief, a top-tier international affairs magazine, and with that, a chance to work with Louis. My resulting illustration accompanies a piece on Canada's potential role as an influence for change in international decision-making.
Yep, I'll be adding this one to my list of significant experiences, and collaborations... and as well, moving Louis' name from 'wish list' to 'favourite client' list.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, CANADIAN LIVING Magazine tips it's hat to our dear mums this month.
My illustration accompanies a piece that reflects upon the ever changing dynamics between mothers and daughters.
This piece was created for the Ontario Secondary School Teacher's Federation (OSSTF) to depict the challenges educators face in navigating the politics & systems of grading students.
