Wordless News is a project by illustrator + designer Maria Fabrizio.

Wordless News is a weekday creative ritual starting at 4:45am. Maria gets up, reads the news, sketches, digitizes, and posts an editorial illustration for a selected headline.

Maria created an illustration of a plethora of puffins for the report:
A Dozen Puffins Will Get You 800 Mackerel: Inside The Weird Economy Of Zoos, by Gabrielle Emanuel at npr.org

The slogan: “One headline per day, vowel and consonant free.”

Wordless News … built on WordPress …
