I got a call from Alexandra Zsigmond from the NY Times last week, to do a quick illustration for the Op-Ed page. My piece accompanied the letters in yesterday's Sunday Times, responding to a recent article on the culture of poverty. Alexandra thought it would be best not to focus on the roots of poverty, but instead show the struggle to escape it. Read the responses here. Thank you again, Alexandra.
I also had an illustration in the Boston Globe Magazine last weekend. The article's author, a Republican, is torn between supporting her party and her best friend, who is running for office as a Democrat. I worked with Grant Staublin on this job. Thanks, Grant!

I did an illustration for the L.A. Times Op-Ed page the other day. It's a very touching story of a woman's pride in her father, a cab driver originally from Afghanistan.
A short synopsis won't do the article justice, so read the whole thing here. Wes Bausmith art directed it, and was especially helpful, as it didn't have a straightforward message the way most op-eds do.
