This ran last Sunday on the cover of the Real Estate section. We took the story from freelancer Sarah Jio and turned it into a graphic tale. I had a lot of fun working on this assignment and giving it a graphic novel look. I worked on it for two weeks, including driving around some Seattle neighborhoods to get visual reference. At the bottom are some rough layouts and the final page. (Go here on the paper's website to download larger pdf versions.)

El domingo pasado publicamos en las páginas de la sección de Mercado Inmobiliario esta adaptación gráfica de un artículo de Sarah Jio, colaboradora del diario. La verdad es que este proyecto al estilo de una novela gráfica fue entretenido. En total le dediqué dos semanas, incluyendo algún recorrido por barrios de Seattle para tomar fotos de referencia. Abajo podéis ver algunos bocetos preliminares y la portada final. (Puedes bajarte archivos en pdf aquí en la web del diario.)

  7. Wow-I love the layout on this. It looks like a fun project to work on, too. The author must have been thrilled with the way your artwork brought her story to life!
