Wall Street Journal

This is a piece for the Wall Street Journal and art directed by Orlie Kraus. 

In pursuing my goals to continue to bring in more of my sketchbook work back into my art, I pushed for a more abstract solution to the problem.

The story is about the issues surrounding using sleeping pills for people who have insomnia and other sleep related issues. It goes into addiction and also the negative side effects of taking those pills.

I wanted to convey that feeling when someone who is sleep deprived. Confused. Staring blankly. The 'wall of sleep deprivation' becoming larger than him. 

Go to the story here.
