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.

Globe and Mail - Mittens!
New Facts & Arguments piece for the Globe and Mail! This essay told of how the author never had mittens or umbrellas as a child, as her mother had deemed them some sort of excessive luxury. When the children went out in the snow, they had to wear socks on their hands in place of gloves. Thanks of course to AD Matt French!

Another piece for the Globe and Mail's Facts and Arguments column. This essay was about a woman in the U.S. Foreign Service who reminisces about the Italian grocery store she grew up in as a child. Now stationed in Ottawa, Ontario, she reconnects with the memory by visiting a local Italian grocer.
These two gentlemen appeared in the latest issue of California Real Esate, for an article on negotiating techniques titled "Listen Closely to Your Opponent". Thanks to AD Nancy Duckworth for the assignment; I always enjoy drawing a man in a suit!

New Work - Globe and Mail, Canadian Grocer
A recent piece for Matt French at The Globe and Mail. It accompanied an essay about a man spoiled by his prodigious reading ability as a youngster, who then finds himself uninterested in keeping up with the pace and practicality of adulthood.
A spot illustration for a column in the February issue of Canadian Grocer. The article discussed how the grocery business is becoming increasingly dominated by non-standard grocery retailers, such as megastores like Walmart and warehouse stores like Costco. Thanks to AD Lindsay Maclachlan!
