Scientific American:Worldview

I was pretty excited to do the cover and a series of illustrations for the 3rd annual Scientific American: Worldview issue.
The feature article was on the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China) and what makes them the new, up and coming nations.
The feature was breaking apart the BRIC nations and identifying what makes them so special, so the idea behind the cover was to deconstruct the BRIC nations, and i wanted to give it the same feel as deconstructivist architecture in a way. Really a lot of fun working on this, and the the open art direction was super great.

Below are a few pictures of the illustrations as they looked once publish and shot by an iPhone.

Here are some of my sketches for the cover and how i came up with the image, incase you wanted to see them.

So the final is sort of a mix of these 2 ideas.

You can download the whole issue and read the different articles by going to
