T Brand Studio for Guinness

Illustrations by Jori Bolton for T Brand Studio and Guinness

I did a few more illustrations for T Brand Studio and Guinness this month, to appear in a paid post in The New York Times. These pieces went along with quiz questions relating to Irish pubs and Guinnes. Above are two of the five commissioned illustrations, though the quiz question that went along with the illustration on the right was nixed, so that piece didn't see publication. It was a fun little series. I got to draw a goat riding a tricycle!

You can read the post here, and see more of the illustrations on my tumblr here.

 

Apple Magazine

Illustration of surgery patient by Jori Bolton for Apple MagazineIllustration for Apple Magazine

A recent piece for Alberta Health Services' Apple Magazine about eating well to get well after surgery, as well as the piece as it appeared in publication. Turns out doctors are recommending surgery patients to eat more than was recommended before, both before and after surgery. More food always sounds good to me!

You can read the article (and the whole magazine) here.

 

 

This is a column illustation for Apple Magazine from last year, for an article about helping people with MS become more active.

T Brand Studio for Guinness

Wrapped up 2016 with some work for T Brand Studio and Guinness. This was some of my first advertising work, and it was an exciting change of pace from editorial illustration. The piece above is part of a series done for a timeline highlighting key moments in Guinness’ history, which can be viewed here.

MoneySense Illustration by Jori Bolton - Are You Covered?

War Cry - Christmas Spirit: Lost & Found

War Cry Illustration by Jori Bolton - Christmas Spirit: Lost and Found

Roger Selvage of War Cry, the Salvation Army magazine contacted me back in July to commission an illustration for their Christmas issue. The article was a touching personal essay about new parents and their daughter who was born with spina bifida just before Christmas.

Larger image and a photo of the spread can be found on my tumblr.

The Globe and Mail - Facts & Arguments - Four Year Watch

Globe and Mail Illustration by Jori Bolton - Four Year Watch

I'm partial to this piece as my fiancée modelled for it, and I didn't need to characterize the figure, so it ended up being an illustration of her for the most part (though she's a brunette, not a redhead).

This was for a crazy Facts & Arguments piece about a woman who sent her broken watch to a repairman and then got it back four years later! You can read the essay here.
