These covers, designed in 2013, are among my favorite editorial illustration projects I've had the chance to work on. That summer, I worked as a design intern in the creative department at the Heritage Foundation, and I got my first taste of working on an in-house design team for internal corporate clients.
I loved editorial illustration from the first time I got to try it. It's conceptual, it's strategic, it's story-telling. These covers, years later, are still some of my favorite examples of work in the illustration category. They both combine my loves of symbolism, texture, and simplicity.
