Welcome to Yellow, an ongoing series that will see 52 artists illustrate 52 weeks of news.

The concept is simple: to showcase the power of illustration by seeing what artists can bring to news coverage beyond traditional film and print journalism. A new piece will be posted here every Monday, reflecting on a story from the prior week, until we gradually build an entire illustrated year from 52 unique perspectives.

Yellow will culminate in a collected book that is now available to back and order through Kickstarter.
