Kiplinger’s November issue is now on newsstands (and atop our dining room table, too). The magazine includes new photo-illustrations I created for the story Six Home Projects That Save Energy (and Money).

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine was founded in 1947 and has a paid monthly circulation of 800,000. The monthly advises its readers on managing their money—covering investing, retirement planning, taxes, insurance, real estate, buying and leasing a car, health care, travel and financing college.

K12I-ONLINE-BROKERS

The December 2014 issue of Kiplinger’s Magazine features my full-spread photo illustration for the article “Best of the Online Brokers”. The survey of ten leading online brokerages included ETrade, Firstrade, Merrill Edge, Schwab, Scottrade, TD America, TradeKing, tradeMONSTER, TradeStation, and Fidelity—who has since opted to reprint and distribute the article at its branch locations nationwide.

The illustration served as a section opener for “Investing” in the monthly magazine’s issue dedicated to “The Best List” (Kiplinger’s picks for everything from phone plan and ride-sharing service to wireless audio and place to retire). The collage of hand drawn elements include a charting of the S&P 500 and ink and watercolor renditions of app icons.

Kiplinger’s April issue includes seventeen of my photographs with the story “The Upside of Downsizing.” I had the pleasure of meeting two of the profiled couples at their new homes.

Patty and Mike Denevi’s new condominium in downtown Los Gatos, CA (50 miles south of San Francisco):

November 2013: A few illustrations were selected by Lustik, a curator of art, and design (and all other things creative and interesting). Thank you Béatrice Lucas—and Petits petits tresors, The Pixelated Nerd and everyone else inspired to reblog. Just like Pinterest (and all you crazy, beautiful pinners), Tumblr is a rabbit hole of delight!

August 2013: Find an interview with me on Found Folios, detailing the process of art-making for a story published by Kiplinger’s.

Finally, I’ve been really pleased to see the nice reception Parenthood Listography has received since it was published in April (Chronicle Books). You can find the book (in great company) on Cool Mom Picks, Green Genes, The Weekly Review, Pop Sugar, Apartment Therapy and the SFMOMA Museum Store

Kiplingers_1

Kiplinger’s August issue is on newsstands, with two of my photo illustrations accompanying Jeffrey R. Kosnett’s story A Cabin in the Woods. As part of the cover package about retiring where you want, the story discusses the how and why of buying (or building) a vacation home with an eye to retiring there. The illustration with cabin exterior (above) was run full-page; the cabin interior (below) was 1/2-page.
