Fight Pollution

Here's a piece I really enjoyed doing for Nick Jehlen at the Progressive.
It was about how powerful the fossil fuel industries are and how it would take a grassroots effort to fight their influence. The article was specifically focused on the aftermath of the BP oil spill and the government, so I covered that in my roughs that I submitted, by I always like to include ideas that have a universal appeal to them, and Nick often seems to pick those.

Of course it would need a much better composition.

Getting the white clouds to work together and read separately at the same time took a couple of failed attempts. Getting closer here.

WIRED etc.

Here's my first piece done specifically for the iPad.
Art director was Rina Kushnir at WIRED.
It was about de-mystifying the writing of software code.

And along the tech theme, was this piece for the Washington Post Book Review of the new book "What Technology Wants" also by a WIRED editor comparing the evolution of technology to biological evolution.

Some of the roughs I sent. There were more, but these were my favorites.
And the layout, just sent to me by the wonderful Carrie Lyle, who smartly art directed this piece.
