Nathan Hackett / The Wall Street Journal / How to Look Cooler Skiing

Nathan Hackett




Nathan was asked by the Wall Street Journal to illustrate for an article on ski gear and how to avoid looking ‘dorky’ on the slopes.
The article recommended covert protective gear that would make skiing safe and, crucially, cool looking.
Tasked with featuring the hidden protective gear in his illustration, Nathan drew a prepared and chic skier effortlessly flying past an ill-equipped and embarrassed one on an idyllic, snowy mountain landscape.
