Yesterday I had an illustration in the NY Times Op-Ed about Michele Bachmann and her migraines. The illustration needed to focus more on the migraine and less on Bachmann. I love that I was able to get a little wild with the scribbles. Once again, many thanks to Aviva!

I found inspiration from this Basquait painting, which seems to scream migraine:

I worked on the Playboy Jazz Festival catalog again this year. This time instead of doing the typical portrait, I was able to provide a more editorial approach to an article about early radio in Los Angeles. I am always hesitant about using more texture on top of more texture, but I think this one holds the page well. Thanks again to AD Fred Fehlau.

I was recently asked to be a part of Gallery Nucleus' Power In Numbers online gallery, and threw together this little painting. Not only is this piece extremely affordable, but a portion of the sale will go to Unicef!
