W O R K I N '   I T

Some new work I did at O magazine, for the August issue. This quiz package is filled with tons of games and flow charts... also a tear-it-out and make-it-yourself fortune teller! I commissioned the lovely paper illustrator Hattie Newman to take my ideas/sketches/ridiculous mockups and turn them into colorful 3-D paper illustrations. I'm loving how this collaboration turned out! I always jump at the chance to include paper art in an editorial layout:

Paper Art by Hattie Newman. Spot illustrations by Mikey Burton.

And here are a few layouts from the July issue. The first one is a story with health tips about barbecuing, and the following layout is a still life featuring fitness gear.
