Grammar Girl — Pod Papers

Art direction: Fairfax Buchanan Banks

Lots of fun lettering pieces and illustrated characters emerged in the process of creating this editorial illustration. This was for Pod Papers, for an article about the difference between i.e. and e.g., based on a podcast by the great Grammar Girl. Shoutout to Fairfax Buchanan Banks, who is a joy to work with!

Here is the final piece, as it appeared in the magazine.
Below are some design and colour variations, as well as some rough sketches from throughout the process. I also worked on a smaller callout illustration, going into more detail about i.e. and e.g. I learned a lot whilst working on this project!
