Skin Deep

FEBRUARY 27, 2009
Cosmetic companies have figured out that sufferers of Eczema will pay just about anything for even a glimmer of hope that they can cure or manage their skin disease.  Unfortunately the creams that cost 6 to 10 times more than existing treatments produce the same results. That was the topic for this illustration that ran in yesterday's New York Times 'Style' section.
Thanks to NYT AD Barbara Richer for being such a pleasure to work with.

After my John Grisham portrait ran in the NY Times a few weeks back, I received a number of calls requesting portraits, not my typical fare. So I decided to do a couple experimental images to continue working on this very tough form of illustration.  Hats off to those who have mastered it.
This is supposed to be Kate Winslet.
