For the Love of Bees

Over the chilly winter months I did a little reading up on our friends the bees, and turned that fascination into a series of info-logos that celebrate the hive. Facts & figures were developed into a fun collaboration with local beekeeper Chris Campbell of Hiveshare. For detailed posts check out my Instagram feed @tracywalkerart .

This summer I'll be enjoying my own honey, thanks to Hiveshare. Local, unpasteurized, artisanal honey at it's best from local fields & wildflowers...yum!

hurray for infographics!

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...!
