Jude Buffum x Scientific American

For its July 2016 issue, Scientific American commissioned Jude Buffum to illustrate its cover story about how video games can enhance mental skills.

Jude drew from his experience of spending hours playing Ms. Pac-Man and saw a direct correlation between the game and the many interconnected lobes of the brain.

SA loved the initial illustration so much that they decided to use it on the interior spread for the cover story, along with illustrations of some of the skills (driving, performing surgery, object rotation in space) that can be learned and improved through playing video games.

Jude is represented by Mendola Artists. See more of his work through his Play! Illustration portfolio and at judebuffum.com.
