This is a graphic that ran in the San Mateo County Times last week. I worked with reporter Julia Scott (always a pleasure) who wrote the text and a related story. This is more of a narrative graphic than most I work on, and these are a lot of fun to put together. Newspaper graphics routinely require the utmost speed but it was held for a couple of days, giving me the opportunity for extra craftsmanship.
This isn't the final version-- there were a couple of tweaks and corrections to the text, as I understand it-- but this is the only copy I have with me right now. Close enough!
