Updating has been perhaps lax because I’ve had to start up another blog for my Advanced Design capstone … which you can see here.

This post doesn’t need a longer title. I’m back at work and can now show you my final infographics project from last semester (I posted some in-progress images of the cats last month) that ran in the Missourian last week – it’s a full page! The subject matter shouldn’t come as a surprise, if you know me.

Here’s another graphic from the Thanksgiving season (two smaller graphics combined into a full page), as well as another holiday-themed one that I never got to finish:
