scientific american: language shapes thought

here's a full page illo that appears in the current issue (february 2011) of scientific american.

the story details how people in different areas of the world have different spatial relationships with their environments because of the ways that their languages shape their thought processes. pretty wild stuff.

it was a last-minute assignment (so i had to turn it around pretty quickly), but i'm really happy with the result. and as always, i get a charge out of wandering into a bookstore and finding something i helped to create on the magazine rack.
