During our coverage of the Michigan Primary Elections, our staff came up with the idea to conceptualize the different parties as the “Rock ’em, Sock ’em” robots.  My intention was to create a visually appealing and engaging cover that differs from a standard photo of the front-running candidates.

My vision for this cover was to create an image of a brain scan that was visually appealing. The story that belonged with this cover focused on new research behind concussions for athletes. The spin on the story was that these brain imperfections, caused by concussions, do not show up on brain scans. This is what I wanted to show in my illustration.

This was an illustration I created for the graduation guide issue.

For our final survival guide issue, I created a color page with original illustrations.
