I have a piece in today's New York Times Op-Ed letters page about the troops in Iraq and the lack of patriotism on the mainland. This was super last minute and a nice challenge to see how fast I can produce a quality image. Also thanks to Eric Davison for the use of his freakishly large hand.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the packed Mini Show! Both my pieces sold and went to a great cause! I forgot to take pictures, so instead here's some promo pieces I'm working on.

I have an illustration in this weekend's New York Times Book Review. Thanks a bunch to one of my favorite ADs Nicholas Blechman for the assignment.

I have an illustration in the New York Times Op-Ed today. It's for an article about re-visiting Haiti after the earthquake. A really moving and interesting first person account. Thanks always to awesome AD Aviva Michaelov. If you are interested in the Op-Ed section there's a great online feature about the Op-Ed turning 40 that was released last weekend. Aviva had a hand in including some great illustration, and watching the video makes me proud to be an illustrator for such a legendary newspaper.
