The Scientist cover & spots






I did these 3 spots and a cover illustration for The Scientist magazine a couple of months ago. It was for a story about Congressional earmarks used for scientific research. I just recently got a couple copies from them, so I was able to scan in the cover.

The cover concept is pretty straight-forward.. they actually had the idea in mind already when they approached me (pig in a lab coat). It's certainly not one of my favorites, but it's what they wanted. Luckily I had more free reign over the concepts for the sidebar spots. The piggy bank one was for a blurb about an earmark for $20 million for a brain imaging institute. The geese was for a section about $2.5 million that went towards a study that created the technology to produce threefold more antibodies from goose eggs than can be made from chicken eggs. And the light-bulbs had to do with how a proposal becomes an earmark -- sifting through dozens of proposals until the brightest idea is found among the faulty ones.
