Like virtually every major pipeline project, the proposed Keystone pipeline is highly controversial and truths on both sides of the debate are as slippery as a fist full of Alberta crude. In an effort to bring a little clarity to the issue, Popular Science devoted two pages to answering some of the key questions in the debate.
Popular Science Infographics Director, Katie Peek, called on me to illustrate a weathered pipeline that wound through the two-page Keystone Pipeline feature article. The illustration, which includes the two oil droplets and their contents, helps pull together the many elements of the layout and guides the reader from start to finish. Smooth as Alberta crude.
