Three Cheers for the Wall Street Journal!

The Wall Street Journal is a huge supporter of illustration, and the paper is much more than articles about mergers and mutual funds. Personal Journal, Off Duty, and other sections offer interesting features on wine, books, health, sports, real estate, etc.

Rapp artists are regularly asked to illustrate these articles as well as financial and investment related ones (thanks WSJ). We’ve devoted this post to some of their recent projects.


Greg Mably

Greg created these funky graphic images for the wine column.

This first piece by Asaf was for an article about the “uberization” of money and the disappearance of the middlemen of banking.


Asaf created this piece for an article about old school Wall Street traders versus the new guys who have yet to experience an interest hike in their time there.
