Trust Magazine China’s Leaders

Portrait of China’s top men; president Xi Jinping and the Premier Li Keqiang. An article looking at their past and how their study in social sciences, Korean language, teaching and statistical economics paired with a more humble upbringing, ‘sent down’ to learn from the peasants; shaped their outlook and approach to leadership at a pivotal moment for China.

A Desperate Choice

New spot illustration for an article about a woman who was forced to leave her two young children in the car for over an hour so that she could attend a job interview. The woman had been unemployed/underemployed for many years and when she couldn’t find child care, she had to make a choice.

For an article on the future of medicine. People will have embeddable sensors to guide their care and drugs will be personalized to each individual so no two prescriptions will be the same. Sketches below.

The Fetish of Staring at Iran’s Women

This piece was for a challenging article titled “The Fetish of Staring at Iran’s Women.” The author is an Iranian woman who cautions against using the bodies of Iran’s women as a yard stick for the state of the country. Throughout news media, images of women fully covered, in a simple head scarf, or dressed similarly to their Western peers are used as a symbol of the country and a symbol of the freedom of its people.

2 (semi) recent illustrations about food!
The top one is for The New Republic, for the article "How Barack Obama Sold Out the Kale Crowd". My art director mentioned that he had seen my food illustrations, so I was really excited to get to draw a buncha fresh (and not so fresh) veggies!
The bottom illustration is a quick one for Adweek, for the article "How Passive-Aggressive Is Instagramming Your Food?" (my answer: gimme all your food photos! I could look at food FOREVER)
Thanks to my New Republic AD Ben Avny & my Adweek AD Ron Goodman for assigning me one of my favorite subjects!

Awesome Word Choice!

A new editorial illustration about the ways in which the English language is evolving - the good and the bad. Does that “awesome” pot roast truly inspire fear and wonder?

Here are two tales:

1. For about a year (seven years ago before I was a full time freelance illustrator), I was assistant manager in a shoe shop in the Office chain. I worked a 40 hour week, and I was paid monthly. In that time my pay was never late, never short, never ‘misplaced.’ I got my pay…

The Ripple Effect of Student Debt

All my experimentation is starting to pay off. This illustration is about the far-reaching effects of student debt in this country. The whole issue is such a shame and really hits home for my husband and myself who will likely be paying student loans for several decades to come.

These days I’m using a heavily mixed-media technique. At the moment it’s more time consuming than my previous work, but as I do it more I’m sure I will be able to speed things up. One of the biggest challenges with incorporating more digital aspects to the work is the sheer amount of choices you have when choosing colors and layer effects. It takes real experience to sort out what looks best and what looks the way YOU want it to look. I’m quite happy with this piece and I’m looking forward to continuing the growth of my work with each piece.

As per usual, this piece is available as a print here.

This is a recent illustration I created about a woman who is tired of meeting people on the internet. She is a blogger who slowly developed an online-only relationship with a man who had commented on her blog only to discover much later that he was a complete fake.

I’m experimenting a lot with my process at the moment which has been very rewarding – despite the fact it takes much longer for…
