State of the Union for New York Times

Yesterday I got a call from the NYT OpEd page, to do a piece about the upcoming State of the Union speech. As usual, it is a fast turnaround and always a fun challenge! I did two versions, one with greys and one without, we ended up going with the purist version. You can see it in the paper today– instant gratification! Thanks again to AD Aviva Michaelov!

I think this turned out great. I know how the quick turnaround jobs can be nerve racking but it looks like you work good under pressure.

Thanks very much Alex! Glad you liked it.

I do enjoy the challenge of doing an illustration on such short deadline. Forces me to focus on what's important, and to make quick decisions!
