Here's my piece in today's NY Times Op-Ed about women journalists in war zones. We wanted it to be a strong and powerful image, so I took the idea of Rosie the Riveter and gave her a hijab and a pencil. The editors were afraid it looked like she was going to inject herself (agreed), so in the printed version the arm is a little darker to give emphasis to the face and the pencil, which I think works out just fine. All the elements are collaged. The face is from an old girlie mag, and the arm is my own with a few improvements.
