I was commissioned for this piece for the Harvard Law Bulletin a few weeks back. The school's International Human Rights Clinic is following a case being heard in the Supreme Court, filed by Esther Kiobel on behalf of herself and several members of the Nigerian Ogoni tribe, against Royal Dutch Shell oil company (alleging crimes against humanity). Ronn, the art director, felt that a simple image connecting Shell with the Supreme Court would work well. I came up with this:
I think Ronn knows his stuff.
To read more about the case, see the article here. Thanks, Ronn!

I'm a freelance illustrator. I've worked for a number of publications including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, Washington Post, the Progressive, Village Voice and many others. I've been recognized by the Denver Egotist, Society for News Design, Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, and Luerzer's Archive. When I'm not illustrating I'm probably playing games with my family. We like to have nightly contests at "Trouble." This is my only blog; I do not have any facebook or myspace pages.
