Aging Well for The Washington Post

I worked with Heather Barber at the Washington Post on this cover for April the 15th’s Health and Science section. The idea was to incorporate four stories from the issue that described different individual’s experiences with aging in to a larger illustration of the theme “Aging Well”.

The stories included a family’s struggle with dementia, a woman’s experience with reprogramming her father’s hearing aids, a young person getting a cataract and a jazz musician sharing his tips for keeping nimble in old age. Type by Heather Barber.

Great fun working on this new piece accompanying an article by Chris Lochery. There’s a little romantic tale going on throughout the image from left to right! Thanks to Chris Clarke for the art direction.

The Mind Minders for New Scientist magazine.
A new piece for an article in this week’s issue describing Microglia cells in the brain and their vital role in ensuring healthy brain function. For most of the century these cells were thought to act solely as “paramedics” tending to injury by clearing away viruses, bacteria and dying neurons. New studies suggest they are also active in the healthy brain as “gardeners” and “caretakers”. For example in pruning back overgrown neural networks and tending to the birth of new neurons and synapses as the brain develops. Original article link (intro only).
