For TIME. AD: Edel Rodriguez
Revolutionaries, diplomacy and overheated runners combined in the past few days to make this a fun week in the studio. I'm also posting a couple from late last week since they were data dumped in the now infamous "Crash of October".
For TIME I was asked to do an image to accompany a commentary piece about the lack of vaild, unbaised political entities who can negotiate peaceful resolutions to international rifts and human rights issues. The writer argues that with the loss of our moral compass, America no longer holds sway in the world.
In today's New York TImes Op-Ed section I illustrated an opinion by legendary Olympic runner Frank Shorter who chimes-in on what really happened at the Chicago Marathon where vast numbers of runners overheating forced the cancellation of the event. Brian Rea, the Op-Ed AD was a true pleasure to work with. I'm attaching the sketches for that one as well.
From a previous posting that was lost in the Drawger data crash I include this cover for New Times here in Miami. The AD is a wonderful and talented young woman named Ivylise Simones. The story is about Roberto Alonso, a Miami transplant formerly from Venezuela, who is fomenting a political uprising against Hugo chavez.
And also from a previous post lost in the crash, from Rolling Stone Deputy AD Joe Newton came a great assignment on how as a culture, Americans have become so numbed and sedated by pop culture distractions that we don't give a damn about what's happening in the rest of the world.

oh, and another running piece for Runner's world Germany, about ways to prevent injuries.
