The Great Finals Posting

Just Visual Journalism pages, some of which I edited to put into the book we had to make.


Create a tarot card of The Magician using American culture as a theme. What's an American Magician? A con-man, that's what. Frank Abagnale, the subject of the movie "Catch Me if You Can" is who I chose to depict on my tarot card. Done with prismacolor.

It's "Maryland Zoo" not "Baltimore Zoo"

Zooooo poster! It's inspired by 1910s newspapers and periodicals. The background is scanned newsprint but I'm thinking it would be better to cut out the middleman and just actually print it out on newsprint. The concept: Summer of 2010, zoo visitors (primarily children) vote for the "King of the Zoo" and the votes are tallied at the end. I guess the winner would get a crown or something. The drawings are done from multiple references both found online and that I took myself so this is actually what the animals look like-ish.
P.S. I wish I were the lion, it's super cool and knows it's Boss.

Toxoplasma Gondii

Apparently about 50% of the human population has the toxoplasma gondii parasite and it makes men more jealous and women more outgoing. Very cause and effect!
