Here's a series of illustrations for St. Edward's University Magazine about scientific advances and breakthroughs from St. Edward's alumni:
Spread 1: Eating salmon may help prevent alzheimer's!
Spread 2: Nasa is testing out a more fuel efficient engine lubricant on a fleet of carpet-industry trucks! (way to get in there, carpet industry!) AND seismic detectors exist and cellphones exist--why not combine them to create an early warning system?
Spread 3: The CDC's Global Disease Detection Program is like the SWAT team of infectious disease threats! (I only wish they had giant robot syringes and a bank of disease screens, though) ALSO patient medical history will soon be available to doctors on iPads, because doctors like to be cool too. (and efficient!) PLUS: Solar powered dairy farms=cheaper milk! Solar powered cows not included.
These illustrations may be some of my new favorite editorial pieces! Science is always pretty fun to learn about, and my designer Natalie and my art director Rick were both very excited and open to my ideas. A big thank-you to them, they were great to work with! Plus, I think I drew the best ear I've ever drawn on that opening spread with the salmon. (the secret: find good reference)
