Animal Spirits
Animal Spirits for The Wall Street Journal
John Maynard Keynes calls the agressive confidence that has always driven Wall Street, and therefore the economy... the animal spirits. The animal spirits are in a downward spiral at the moment and so confidence and trust seem to have evaporated.
I like playing with the translucency of watercolor and this image presented a good opportunity for that.
God is Black
For the Kinsley Essay page in TIME
The title for this essay "God is Black" is about all I had to go on at the TIME, as it was not yet written. The premise is that the authoratative voice has been African American for awhile now (think James Earl Jones and Morgan Freeman).
It was a great opportunity to draw some of those strange little Putti characters.
Goodbye Mr. Bush
For the Commentary page, TIME Magazine
It was good to receive an assignment from TIME outlining the many crimes of the outgoing administration. I could not help but think of the hulking machines driven by the puny pink aliens in War of the Worlds. I used this opportunity to indulge my armor fetish as the vessel for the little man.
