This graphic is based on the findings of a study on irrigation in California causing an increase in monsoons in the southwest.

The main difficulty in presenting this graphic was explaining enough of the systems, but in so much detail that the reader became lost in one step of the graphic.

Clip: The presidency in terms

As Barack Obama’s second presidential term neared, I wondered how we could show the timeline of the country in recent years. I worked to find data stretching back to 1933 while artist Maxwell illustrated the information. Each bit of data is intended to be a measure of something heavily impacted by the president.

I also found historic milestones of Obama’s first term, coupled with his approval rating by week, to provide more detail leading up to his second term.

Clip: Ring out Orange County’s 2012

I first got the idea for this graphic when I saw this website that shows the average color of the New York sky, updated every 5 minutes and based on webcams.

I wondered if there would be a way to visualize Orange County’s sky over the course of, perhaps, a year. I started by searching for weather data for the year. Then I thought we could attempt to show the county’s year through data – and to weave it all together in a circle. Artist Maxwell pulled it all together visually.
