Today's Op-Ed: Myanmar

MAY 19, 2008
I got a call on Friday afternoon from Brian at the Op-Ed page.  He needed a final....that afternoon.  Okay!  I got to work and did a number of quick sketches which are below.  The final art above was printed today, it's a combination of ink washes and oil based ink line.
The subject of the Op-Ed are the sanitation problems that will likely arise in Myanmar due to the cyclone that has devastated the area's plumbing systems.  Cholera and other diseases could cause more deaths than the initial storm.  The article is titled "Send in the Latrines" and can be read online here
