Farm to Table

For Tufts University Magazine, story about Dan Barber, a well-known chef, restaurant owner and farmer interested in sustainable farming and an idea he calls the Third Plate.

And here's a pitch for illustration. This was their possible photo option.
Enough said.

I love this subject (healthy food) so it was easy coming up with a bunch of ideas.
Margot Grisar was the smart AD on this one.

In the layout.

Comrade Xi's Choice

For the Wall St. Journal on Xi Jinping and the current Hong Kong protests. AD Keith Webb.
After seeing my roughs Keith suggested a totally new idea, a view from above with Xi Jinping's portrait on the umbrellas.

I thought it was a great idea, so I worked it up real quick.

Some color tests.

Of course the likeness of Xi Jinping needed some work.

Nice and big in the paper, thanks Keith!
