Elizabeth Taylor

Today Elizabeth Taylor passed away at 79, which seems young. She had quite a full life- a wonderful obituary from the NYT

Some recent work

I've been busy and not always posting, so thought I'd share some recent work from a court here in NYC. This was a day of streaming witnesses, a personal best - I did 8 sketches. This particular hearing gave me the perspective of 9/11 from the other side, our firefighters. The casualties from that day are still adding up, unfortunately.

Autism; a sensitive topic

I was recently asked to illustrate an Op-Ed on Autistic programs and how budget cuts could affect them. The focus was on children, and how programs specifically for them can help bring a quality of life, expression and awareness. I thought of 'square to the circle' because often that must be how it feels; not quite fitting in, or 'staying in the lines'.

Painful cuts

Not long ago, Newsday hired me to do an op-ed piece on education cuts. With today's announcements of NYC Board of Ed's teacher cuts, I thought this would be a timely post. Such a painful fallout from our struggling economy. Here's hoping
things lighten up soon and these educators can be placed back where they belong- teaching our children.
