Lookout for Asteroids

Aviva from the New York Times must have had a hunch that I love drawing asteroids when she called me to create an illustration for this Op Ed calling for more government money dedicated to early detection of deadly meteorites.

Undead, Yet Funded*

I was lucky enough to get the call from Christine Carr and Joseph Hueron about creating a cover illustration that depicts the current (pre-Halloween) GOP news makers as zombies. It was a terrific assignment and they pushed my sketches until we had the concept locked up. My friend Erik Brandt saw some of my sketches and covered the process on his excellent blog GEOTYPOGRAPHIKA.
