Here's a recent piece for The New York Times Well blog about menopause and how to manage the side effects. I enjoyed making her look really uncomfortable. Thanks again to Peter Morance for the gig.

 Here's a piece I worked on a few weeks ago that came out this past Sunday for The New York Times Sunday Review. The article is about the failure of imagination on the part of civilians in responding to veteran's experiences. I like this graphic approach and the double vision dreamlike portraits. The strong colors imply trauma and strong emotions. Thanks to Erich Nagler and Aviva Michaelov for another fun assignment.

Here's my comp. The hat was too old fashioned, so I ended up changing it to a helmet.
