Oil Spill Graphic by Tucker Nichols
Tucker Nichols is an artist based in San Francisco, who I know personally and whose talent I not-so-secretly envy. He has a penchant for beautiful mind maps, clever and simple graphics, and his recent work for the New York Times is no exception. Designed to accompany a piece entitled "The Good Driller Award," Tucker designed a series of oil splats that fall across the page of the printed version of the paper (seen in photo above).
