"Creating the illustrations and cover for Apocalyptic Best Practices was one of my all-time favorite projects. The book helps readers understand the science behind fear, which means it contains a lot of abstract concepts and esoteric knowledge. I loved turning those concepts, and Dr. VanderWeil's stories, into lively and engaging images that can help readers transform their own thinking about fear."
