I was recently asked by Benefits Selling Magazine to work on an illustration for the December 2013 addition. The feature, titled “PPACA’s Pivotal Point”, is about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the pros and cons of what the public, insurance brokers and their clients might expect in the coming year. After reading the article, I kept thinking about how the ups and downs, unanswered questions, fear of the unknown, etc. seemed equivalent to navigating stormy seas. Below, is the four page spread. I think that it turned out great and I really love how the designers worked the compass idea from my illustration in the title!
