From the Design Desk | Artwork by Alexander Hong

Alexander Hong/Staff

Here at The Daily Californian, the design department is responsible for both laying out the physical newspaper you pick up every day as well as for handling all the illustrations you see accompanying feature stories, editorials, and op-eds. Many of the staff also work on art in their own time, and in this series we highlight some of those pieces.

This week’s “From The Design Desk” comes from Daily Cal staffer Alexander Hong. In line with this week’s issue surrounding platforms and narratives, Hong’s artwork constitutes a narrative in the form of four scenes, or “concentrations.”

Concentration 1 — “Entrance”



Concentration 2 — “Altar”



Concentration 3 — “Robotic Ruins” 



Concentration 4 — “Overgrowth”
