A False Sense of Security, for The Wall Street Journal

Here is something I just created for the Wall Street Journal titled, “The limits of Antivirus Software”.  Though we may think our antivirus software is protecting us, hackers can actually use the code to gain access to our critical data.  Thanks to Orlie Kraus, art director!

New Work for The Economist

I've been busy illustrating for The Economist lately!  Here are a few of my favorite images I created over the past few weeks for their Banyan Section on Asian Politics.

India and China vie over the Himalayan border

Taiwan embraces same-sex marriage

America pulling away from it's leadership role in Asia

Adapting to a new politic

It's always a great pleasure illustrating for the weekly Economist's Banyan section.  This is something I created for an article describing how the remaining 11 countries of the Trans Pacific Partnership are trying to survive after their economic superpower trading partner, the US, recently cut off relations following the implementation of President Trump's new trade policies.  (Article here

I like making my illustrations move!

A question of dialect

With the many language groups and dialects spoken in China today, Mandarin rises to the front.  The challenge for this illustration was to convey the clashing of many smaller and differing dialects coming from the same place, but merging into a larger and more direct communication.

Film and freedom

Despite censorship efforts on the part of their government, independent documentary films are coming out of China that shed light on its life and politics.  For The Economist magazine's Banyan column on Asian politics.

for Computerworld Magazine: Editor's Choice Awards 2016

It was great working with art director April Montgomery on a new cover and inside illustration for September's Computerworld.  The challenge was to show how data mining is being used by modern scientists in their real-world applications and discoveries.

Big data analytics and real-world results

Migrants and Poets

Migrants in Asia, lonely and struggling to provide for their families far away find solace in poetry. Some migrant poets are respected for the first time, being seen as intelligent, fellow humans by the host countries that often take advantage of migrants' willingness to labor in hard jobs that they themselves won't take,  even eyeing them with suspicion.  For The Economist magazine.

"Foreign Lives", for The Economist

"Open wounds", for The Economist

It was an interesting challenge to work with the subject of "conscience" for The Economist's Banyan current article about Indonesia coming to terms with a dark period in its past.  Public discussion had been taboo until now, but the government-condoned murders of over 500,000 people or more who sympathized with the communist party between 1965 and 1966 has now been brought out into the light.

"Open wounds"

Guns in the classroom

Here's something I recently created for The Chronicle of Higher  Education for an article about students carrying guns in Texas classrooms and on campus without anybody knowing about it.  

New art for Drawing Dreams - limited edition prints!

Derek May, director of the Drawing Dream Foundation requested prints of two of my latest images for their annual charity fundraiser on the charity buzz auction.  My prints are limited edition glicee prints on 30” x 24” watercolor paper with archival inks.  Drawing Dreams donates art supplies to children in hospitals in the US and Canada.

New Illustrations for Northwestern University on Forbes site

I was commissioned by Rebekah Raleigh to illustrate a series of illustrations for Kellogg School of Management for the Forbes website.  The articles present ways that big companies can adapt to challenges that are posed by smaller, nimbler startups in the digital age. 

"4 Ways To Harness Digital Disruption".  How established companies can protect themselves from startup competition.

"Rules Of Engagement".  How big companies can work to attract and interact with startups as a way of creating an "ecosystem" that is mutually beneficial. 

The tracks of their tears

This piece was for the Economist's Banyan column, showing  tears being shed by remorseful politicians in Hong Kong when they lost their democratic right to vote for candidates for their leader.
