Article Illustrations

I created article images for David C. Baker’s blog and email newsletter articles.

David and I meet in person or chat over email to discuss the upcoming articles. David keeps a backlog of articles and has brief summaries on what they will be about.

People remark on how they remember the article images, so it’s not just a fun project- it helps David stay top-of-mind!


David will give me any ideas or subject matter directions for each article, and I’ll create a simple cartoon illustration to go with it.

I’ll send a first draft to David for approval, then make any changes. Sometimes it takes both of us to brainstorm a good idea when the first one isn’t quite landing!
