Sam Weber leaves the NY Times Op-Ed
Sam Weber and one of his illustrations, exhibited in the 9th floor gallery at the old NY Times building.
I owe Sam a debt. At one point he suggested that I use my sketches as final art, something that I had not previously done (I lacked the confidence). There's a roughness and spontaneity in my black lines which appears in my sketches, and often gets lost as I "pasteurize" the art when doing finals. Sam's suggestion has had a big impact on all my work, and brought me closer to my personal Grail of the perfect line. Good luck Sam! It's been great working with you. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your illustration work around... hopefully here on Drawger!
Here are some assignments we worked on together:
Taming the Deficit.
"When Money Talks, Do Voters Lose?"
America's Health Care Crisis.
Aftermath of an Election.
"Can We Afford Our Oil Gluttony?"
Federal Crackdown on Activists.
America's strategy in Iraq.
