Podcast Illustrations Vol. 1

Podcast Illustrations Vol. 1

Client / Personal Project

A selection of illustrations inspired by some of my favourite podcasts and their best episodes.

One of the best parts of being a designer is getting to listen to podcasts all day!

I've been wanting to do a series of illustrations depicting some of my favourite shows for ages, so I'm super happy to have finally got around to it. This set features illustrations of This American Life, The Memory Palace, Reply All, Love + Radio and 99% Invisible.

Top No. 1 / The Memory Palace - Craning  This episode recalls the launch of Apollo 11, and what it must have been like standing among those watching history being made on July 16, 1969.  Listen here    Above No. 2 / Reply All - All My Pets  Taylor Nicole Dean was a self-described shut-in, a teenager who lived in her parents' home, surrounded by exotic pets. And then she started making videos on YouTube.  Listen here

No. 4 / This American Life - In the Shadow of the City  Out for a simple pleasure cruise with two friends, Alex Zharov was planning to see Jamaica Bay in New York City. But this end-of-the-day excursion, which should have only lasted 40 minutes, turns into an out-of-control adventure that left him lost, stranded, and bleeding...all within sight of the Empire State Building.
