 I have a new piece in today's International Herald Tribune about an exiled blind lawyer activist from China. It's always exciting working with the Hong Kong office on these international pieces. I can never quite get my head around the idea that it is already tomorrow there...which means the final is due when!!??

 Today I have a piece on the cover of The New York Times' Sunday Review about ADHD and the connection to sleep dysfunction. I get asked quite often how I create my illustrations, so I've included not just the sketch but a progress shot. It's all digital collage.
Thanks to Aviva on this one. Always a pleasure working with her.






Here's also a spot for the same article. Crazy eyes!

 Here's a new piece for this month's Scientific American Magazine about the difficulty around diagnosing and treating sepsis, a deadly blood disease. I really enjoyed this one, and it was a challenge to mimic the classical painting I used in my sketch. Thanks again to Ann Chin on this one.

Here's my piece in today's New York Times Op-Ed about illegal children immigrants being caught up in the US legal system. It was cool to be able to change the format a bit, thanks to AD Matt Dorfman.
