‘Persuading the body to regenerate its limbs’ illustrates an essay by Matthew Hutson in the New Yorker Magazine on the biologist Michael Levin's theory that cells use bioelectricity to decide what to become.















'The secret life of a Coronavirus' is an essay by Carl Zimmer adapted from his book ‘Life’s Edge’. The full page illustration is featured on the cover of the NYTimes Sunday Review along with a supporting visual. The breathing animation of the key visuals echos a big question in the essay and asks: Are viruses Alive?





















 'There is more to us than just our brains' reviews the book 'The Extended Mind' by Annie Murphy Paul and digs into the power of thinking outside the brain. The illustration lives in the NYTimes Book review section and visualises our ability to hear the signals that our bodies are communicating to us every bit as much as our brains are. Art direction: Matt Dorfman, New York Times
