I got a call from the Boston Globe, they are starting to use illustration as part of a new Op-Ed page, I'm not sure what they were doing before. The first story they asked me to work on was on the shutting down of Dodgertown, a Spring training facility down in Vero Beach, Florida. The Brooklyn Dodgers trained there and the place ended up being an experiment in desegregation during the time of Jackie Robinson. If you're a baseball fan, check out the article here, I enjoyed reading it.
I sent the recent Obama portrait I did over to the NY Times and they picked it up for the paper. It would be great if every assignment worked this way! Thanks to Brian Rea and the editors for going with it. Articles online here.
