Men's Health

Half page illustration for the June 2018 issue of Men's Health magazine on how overuse of ibuprofen can kill you.

Here's the roughs. We decided to go a basketball direction instead and used the skull piece for the secondary art.

Newsweek Cover

Newsweek cover for the July 20th issue, about who will be the future leader of the Palestinians.
Art direction by Michael Goesele.

Roughs. Michael like the crowd, but it felt too "Arab Spring"

So I made a quick modification to address that.

And then a tight color sketch for him to tryout with typography.

Micheael mentioned the possibility of a spread on the inside, so I made sure the final illustration could cover that usage as well.

Catholic Health Association

For a complete issue of Health Progress Magazine.

This was a big multi-page project, so I don't want to overwhelm by posting all 70 roughs so here's some of my favorites that Mary Ann had to pick from.

Rescuing from trafficking.

Immigration Ethics

Unified religious response to trafficking.

Caring for the Other

Cover image update Selected for American Illustration 37

Secessionist Hack

For Dallas Morning News story about how Putin's Russia is funding secessionists movements on the right and left within the United States.

Michael (the AD) had the good idea to have me switch the fists on the Vladimir portrait for a US maps. So I sent this color rough to show him that is was working.

And here's the final. Update this got in Communication Arts, thanks Michael!

Country Cemeteries

A story about a rich old lady who loves little country cemeteries so much she buys her own. For Texas Power magazine.

Here's the roughs I send Jane.

Sierra Magazine

Story headline was "No is Not Enough" but the story included alot about global warming killing off coral reefs so I wanted to cover that angle as well.

Tracy (the AD on this) had the good idea to combine two of the ideas for the final illustration.
