The New Yorker

Featured illustration by Robert Beatty

At The New Yorker, I art direct illustration for web-only posts—everything from Pulitzer Prize winning political coverage to cultural criticism to book reviews. I work closely with our web photo editors to find and create the best artwork for a post—whether that it’s a commissioned photo illustration or a wire photo. I also art direct web-only interactives, commission website iconography, design social media and video graphics, and run the art department’s Instagram account.
