"AfPak's Odd Couple. Presidents Karzai and Zardari are working together. But let's not pretend they're perfect."


This was done to repeated listening's of Neil Hefti's score for "The Odd Couple." I've long been a great fan of the movie. To me, Matthau and Lemmon are THE Odd Couple.

 The truly odd thing is that I'd just watched the movie again on the Friday before being assigned this piece the following Wednesday. Here's the sketch.

 These are for Joe Klein's IN THE ARENA column for TIME, art directed by Cynthia Hoffman. The photo heads are researched by Diana Suryakusuma.

 Obama's quest to reimagine health care. I suspect I was  unconsciously influenced by a steady diet of Three Stooges shorts in my youth on this one. Paging Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard.

"Terrorism on Trial: After eight years, we still haven’t found the right way to prosecute enemy combatants."



"Debates over abortion and affirmative action remain dominated by extremists. But sensible positions exist." The flag references Klein's line in the piece concerning "...an African-American President and a polychromatic society moving towards racial...equity..."

For the flag skin tone stripes I threw photos of random faces and body parts from my "flesh" files onto the scanner and then selected an isolated color from them. There were seven of these for the piece. Here are two of them

Two illustrations for a spread entitled "Why Obama Should Keep Talking To Israel and Start Talking To Hamas."


 The above piece is for an essay by Joe Klein entitled, "A meeting in Damascus shows why the U.S. must be prepared to deal with all sides."

This was for the companion essay by Peter Beinart, "Getting tough on settlements is a necessary first step for mideast peace."
