For the Book Review section on a satirical novel by Michelle de Krester- The Life to Come.  The author challenges that travel does not necessarily broaden one’s mind. The characters are globetrotting cosmopolitans that make a fetish for travel and prepare food, not for sustenance, but for Instagram worthy pictures.

After I sent the sketch, we decided to have 1" more on either sides so it fits all digital publication platforms.

nyt Sketchbook section

For the Sketchbook section on NYT. It is a standalone, print-only art spot and responds to “current events.”

On Cynthia Nixon’s run for governor of New York. Nixon is best known as an actress who played Miranda in the television show “Sex and the City,” but she also has a well-documented history of public education advocacy. Our focus of interest was that her celebrity is discussed to the exclusion of her platform and history of political organizing.
