In this piece, I enhanced user experience when opening a new articles for The New York Times. Incorporating illustration in a way that would affect the article in a way to get the main ideas across to the viewer. When implemented, the viewer will experience this once and have the option to turn it off to view the article in its entirety.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
A double page spread, commenting on the restrictions placed on LGBTQ+ families who adopt and foster children solely based on their sexuality and who they love. Denying a child a loving family on the bases of orientation does a disservice to these children and families.
My illustration depicts a loving family playing in a park.
MIND YOUR MEMORY
Full page spread for an article called Mind Your Memory explains early onset Alzheimer's and Dementia. The figure is confused on where all the wires are supposed to go and how to make connections. As someone who has lived with a family member who has Alzheimers, its all about make those mental, and cognitive
connections. And sometimes those wires get crossed.
This is a full page cover for the Mindfulness Journal a publication about creating a mind-full, happy outlook of life and how to decrease negative stresses in life. For this piece I wanted to focus on the aspect of nature and how it almost always creates peacefulness in those who seek it out within their daily lives.
