Julia Rothman’s Illustrations Make Finances More Fun

Illustrator Julia Rothman works together with writer Shaina Feinberg to create fun illustrations that make the finance world more relatable and fun for everyone. The two of them launched a new illustrated column in The New York Times last fall called Scratch, where they publish financial examples through human interest stories.

Rothman’s art reveals the truth behind some of the most interesting stories regarding the cost of things. Her previous stories included the cost of opening a coffee shop, having a baby through IVF, and living in NYC as a drag queen.
