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 clients, including the New York Times, Newsweek, Pentagram Design, The Atlantic, The New Yorker and many others. I've been recognized by the Denver Egotist, Society for News Design, Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, Luerzer's Archive and American Illustration. When I'm not illustrating I'm probably playing games with my family. We like to have nightly shadow puppet contests. My best pose is "The Sinking of the Lusitania." It's an awesome pose, but I can only do it once.
