I assisted the WSJ Video group with some animation for their video on the insane craft that is sword swallowing.  This gif is a bit of a preview.

While at the WSJ I created many 'crowns' or small graphic elements which might sit atop a larger interactive graphic but give insight into what the reader could expect.  This crown was for an interactive graphic on shifting polls in the swing states leading up to the election.

Header illustration for an Election Hangover Kit.  We all needed this.

An example of an infographic I created for the WSJ in which we break down the full-sized print infographic into animated components for online readers which would offer more details and flourishes than the print art had room for.

One project I worked on was about the various self driving cars being designed and the different ways they would interactive with the road and bystanders.  In this case I animated my sketch for a better sense of the final animations.

We once created an amazing graphic for the WSJ called The Oscars of Everything Else which meticulously cataloged categories such as Most F-Bombs, Most Fisticuffs, Most Nudity, Most Crying and my favorite - Most Dogs (I illustrated my dog Winnie above).
