'Indecision 2000' or 'Hanging Chads'
Oddly satisfying to see that my first caricature of our new president is of his head on a platter (remember that strange band-aid he was wearing on his face in those press conferences the day after the election?). This illustration and the one to the left were both for an east coast legal newspaper in those hectic days following the election fiasco of 2000. I don't remember exactly why there was a portrait superimposed over the election ballot, but I seem to remember that the article was finding some sort of parallels with an earlier election fracas in our nation's history. (Madison I think?)
For my national newspaper client, I had a number of black and white scratchboard assignments this month, but very little to do with the election. The first one below had something to do with the Republicans gaining power in the election, and the investors along for the ride.
There was also a spot having something to do with real estate (above), and a small spot having something to do with computer glitches (pictured left).
The illustration below was for the same client and had something to do with 'finding subcontractors online'
The above illustration was for the same client and had something to do with a power company from the U.S. entering new markets in Central and South America. The illustration below was for my east coast newspaper client, and had something to do with cyber-espionage. The illustration to the right was for an educational publication in November, and, frankly, I don't remember what it was about.
