New York Times

Hey check out today's NY Times! I have a cover illustration in the business section accompanying an article by Andrew Ross Sorkin, concerning Wall Street and it's impact on the rest of the world.  Obviously, I am beyond psyched about this one and want to extend a huge thanks to AD, Uong Minh for this opportunity, and for his great eye and sage art direction.  I'm also posting my sketches for the job. As you can see, the first version was oriented more vertically and the borders vignetted in an oval shape.  Expanding the 'epic' skyline to the full page was definitely the right call.

You can see the full article on the NY Times website here.
