A Reckoning for Eric Garner’s Death is an interactive graphic story to accompany Wesley Lowery’s coverage of the trial that finally adjudicated Garner’s case. I both created a series of looping animations and wrote the text that boiled Lowery’s coverage down to its essence. It was such an honor to work with the Pulitzer-winning journalist, and I learned a lot about effective storytelling. See the full graphic here.
The loop above was pretty tricky to do, it gave me a lot of respect for those infinitely looping 3D animations all over Instagram.
