Seniors & ‘The Internet of Everything’, for a special edition supplement for WIRED readers. With thanks to my art director, Ryan Vulk.
My illustration accompanied info about advances in connectivity and technology that could benefit seniors—one of which may be cool helpful robots! As you can see, some bits and pieces got changed from the original sketch, and I also had the sudden realization that a table with ONE chair is infinitely sadder than a table with TWO chairs.
When it came time to figure out the final, I had no clue how the lighting would actually work. I searched the internet without success until I realized that my stupid hands could actually make a rough lighting model—way more efficient! My final isn’t 100% accurate, but the general idea is there.
