Taking Cover – NPR/WBEZ Chicago and The Better Government Association
Posted 3 months ago and submitted by Leigh Cox | Share link: http://illo.cc/74111





I’m excited to share my latest editorial work for WBEZ (Chicago’s National Public Radio affiliate) and The Better Government Association, illustrations for an interactive online feature titled “Taking Cover“. Composing this work was a fun and challenging collaboration between myself, NPR Chicago and The BGA. Multiple concepts and drafts were considered to best capture the tone of this investigative piece about police accountability in the Chicago suburbs. My original brush and ink illustrations are featured throughout the piece, which started as black and white and were later inverted to white on black images. This was a fast-moving project with a lot of moving parts and two (!) different sets of editors, and I’m really pleased with the finished product!
