Museum in a Vault

I get to draw a lot of glowy things lately! This is a cover illustration for yesterday's New York Times Sunday Business section. The story is about the Geneva Freeport - the largest impregnable storage operation for art collectors in the world. "How much art is stockpiled in the Geneva Freeport? Nobody is widely believed that there is enough art tucked away on the premise to create one of the world's greatest museum." Read the entire article here
Thank you AD Minh for such a fun assignment!!

Pocket Watch

A piece in the PLANSPONSOR July! This piece is about "Watching your pocket/saving with the amount of time till retirement in mind';  we decided to run with the pun:"pocket watch". Working with AD SooJin  is a blessing as I always get to sneak in subject matters I love into the assignments. I am such a sucker for clockwork and mechanical watches. 

ADs, please keep hiring me so I can burn my cash on a Blancpain moonphase one day... 

(The sketch was flipped to work better with the right-facing layout in the final. )
