This illustration assignment was for the sports section of the New
York Times. It's about looking forward to spring and playing baseball,
which I love to do. You can read the story by David Vecsey here.

I was commissioned to illustrate a portrait of George Washington
for a special exhibition at Mount Vernon. “Take Note! George
Washington the Reader” displays a collection of his books and
personal effects. The image was used for signage and labels in
the exhibition. You can also see it in a video that gives a behind-
the-scenes look of the exhibit. See the video here. Read more
about the exhibit here.

This piece was for a New York Times story about a recently deceased
Cleveland Browns fan's obituary that asked for six Browns to be his
pall bearers so "they could let him down one last time." The article is a
good read, and you can get it here.
