I got an email from Joey Santos at the L.A. Times last Monday, for an upcoming cover of the Health Section. The job also included a black and white interior piece, and possibly a few spots to accompany other essays. The turnaround was quick, so the spots weren't going to work, but I was able to do the cover and the inside illustration.
The first essay was by a man who discovered that reciting Shakespeare's most famous sonnets helps him to keep pace while exercising.
The second essay was by a woman that loves the act of eating salad. Her husband, however, prefers to blend his ingredients, and drink his salad. As always, it was great working with Joey.
