Scientific American

Jori Bolton - Illustration for Scientific American - The Tech Jungle

Scientific American has long been a dream client of mine, so I was thrilled when I was asked to illustrate an article for this month’s issue. Back in college, my roommates (including fellow illustrator Hannah Wilson) and I got a subscription to Scientific American, and I remember flipping through the magazine and thinking about how cool it would be illustrate one of those pages.

The illustration was for the column “Navigating the Jungle of Tech Ecosystems” by David Pogue, about how the smartphone offerings of Apple, Google, and Microsoft are technologically indistinct, but differ based on their respective “ecosystems” of interconnected products and services. You can read it here.
