Good Times, Bad Times.

I have worked for The New York Times over the years and it can be challenging to come up with several concepts and final art in only a few hours.( I often think of a perfect solution the day after the assignment is due.)
I’ve worked for Steven Guarnaccia, Brian Rea, John Hendrix and Sam Weber, all wonderful illustrators as well as art directors. These are two illustrations created for the Times. They appeared in the letters section of the op-ed page. The first accompanied letters concerning the Virginia Tech shootings , the second was in reference to Hurricane Katrina.
The Shooter was painted in acrylic on canvas, in color originally. Katrina was black gesso on board and photoshop.
