Northwestern University commissioned me to illustrate several essays in their alumni magazine. What was especially fun on this assignment was their openness to taking an entirely different approach on each image.
First was an essay about Northwestern alums doing interviews with college applicants to make the process more personal. I thought of this as the alums creating a sort of portrait of the applicant.
Next was a piece about helping people with aphasia – inability to speak or understand speech as a result of a brain injury.
This was a lighter essay about a lifetime love of running.
and running as part of travel.
The last story was about a student organization of veterans helping other veterans adjust to life at college after serving in active duty.
