JFK100: A Life Illustrated
A digital campaign proposal celebrating President Kennedy’s 100th
birthday through engaged illustration.
Above, A brief collection of portraiture of President Kennedy in the 1960's. Further demonstrating Kennedy's visual memory and impact in his iconic depictions. It's from this collective memory, I feel a illustrated series of his life could be best suited to mark his centennial.
As the story goes, my Grandmother took my mother and her brother's to see Senator's Kennedy campaigning outside of Philadelphia, PA in 1960. My mother recalls this day vividly and from this moment forward, I believe a real bond was made for my family.
As President Kennedy's motorcade passed through Willow Grove, my mother's hometown. She was fortunate enough to have been able to briefly shake his hand. This story remains a bright spot for my family as my grandmother passed in June of 1962. We've come to think back fondly on this time and the hopeful vision that JFK shared for our nation. It is also a message and source of inspiration I've brought into my art and creative work.

I've recently developed visual storytelling projects with Oxfam UK and the National 9/11 Museum. Together we've created unique visuals for social media to further engage audiences.
