“Are Your Operations Ready for a Digital Revolution?”, is the title of this cover illustration for The Boston Consulting Group.

My recent illustration is paired with the CEO letter in Korn Ferry Briefings Magazine titled, “Without People There Is No Show”.

This cover illustration is about how the flow of digital information/money is forever changing the banking industry. It’s very complex and on a mind boggling scale. The illustration is somewhat of a departure for me or least an experiment. It was difficult to distill the article into a singular, conceptual image so I decided on a more diagrammatical solution that involves many layers and international currency references. I think it depicts the feeling of movement around the globe and how the world is really one giant market.

As I was working through my catalog of images I found this one. I still like it even though it was done a few years ago. It’s a different take on being “put out to pasture” before one is ready. Wait, is anyone ready to be put out to pasture? I think not.
