Washington Post, AD Emmet Smith
Emmet suggested at the outset a woman with football laced stitched lips. I knew that was going to be a great idea, but I still had to try to beat it. But I couldn't : )

For Tufts University Magazine, story about Dan Barber, a well-known chef, restaurant owner and farmer interested in sustainable farming and an idea he calls the Third Plate.
I love this subject (healthy food) so it was easy coming up with a bunch of ideas.
Margot Grisar was the smart AD on this one.
In the layout.

I thought it was a great idea, so I worked it up real quick.
Of course the likeness of Xi Jinping needed some work.

For the play "Native Son" for Chicago Magazine.
Alot of good illustration has already been done for it, so I felt challenged.
I thought an early scene with the metaphoric rat had some good visual potential.
The play is set in 1930's Chicago so I did a bit of history research for the skyline.
However, if I was to do this for a play poster, I wouldn't need to reference the theatre curtain.
So I would have done it like this.

Paul Volcker was mentioned in the article so I was sure to include some options with him.
Thanks Scott and Kyung for the surprisingly fun job!
