"The Patient is not Always Right" - cover illustration for Washington Business Journal.

Michele Melcher

I'm excited to share with you the cover illustration that I did for this week's Washington Business Journal. The article, "The Patient is Not Always Right", written by Tina Reed, is about people writing negative online reviews about service and medical care that they have received.

They wanted me to show a patient in bed writing a bad review while showing how displeased that they are. One of my strengths in illustration is capturing facial emotion and so I thought that the super "thumbs down, eye-rolling stink face" would drive the point home. I am really happy with the way that this turned out and think that it makes a really strong cover story illustration. Many thanks to Jamey at WBJ for the art direction. Below, you can see the illustration and the layout. Enjoy!
