Take a look at this information-filled video about Zika, by the creative folks at PBS/NOVA. I had the honor of providing about 1/4 of the illustrations used in the video. If you want a clue of what to look for, when looking for my drawings, take a look at the illustration within the circle of the intro book jacket. That's one of mine.

Story
Tagline
Veteran artist/illustrator/designer and news graphics junkie
Introduction
I draw pictures the old-fashioned and the new-fashioned way. Give me a pencil, a paint brush or my Wacom tablet and trusty Mac and I'm good to go. I've been doing this long enough to consider myself a reliable veteran of the craft. Head on over to ricktuma.com to look over some of my work.
Bragging rights
Solid drawing skills using a variety of media. Able to create solid portraits/caricatures from good photos of people. Presently producing one CEO portrait per week for the Chicago Tribune's Monday Business front page.
