A Capitalist’s Dilemma
Why is our economy so stuck? When will it get better? Why is this great machines taking forever to recover when recessions are usually self-fixed within 6 months for decades? CLAYTON M. CHRISTENSEN, business professor at Harvard and a co-author of “How Will You Measure Your Life?”, pin-points the problems and offers some insightful solutions in today’s NYTimes Sunday Business.
Frankly I am one of those who always skip the business section in a paper. When I was given this long manuscript for the assignment, I was like “oh man…”, but it turned out to be a VERY interesting read. You know what, I think I may grab a copy of Mr.Christensen’s book.
This essay is by far the most complex/abstract subject matter I have tackled, and I enjoyed the challenged very much. Thank you AD Minh for entrusting me with a difficult task!
Puddled by Sandy
No storm can stop the NYTimes! This free-standing art is for today’s letter page. I was asked by AD Alexandra to create a general image of a storm in NY as we didn’t know what exact impacts Sandy would have. Right around I finished the piec
It’s rough seeing all the damges Sandy has caused. Please be safe and stay strong y’all!
Cost of cool
Cover illustration for yesterday’s NYTimes Sunday Review. The article is about the terrifying damages AC is doing to our environment : “We can’t live without AC but we can’t live with AC.” Many thanks to AD Erich Nagler!!
Museum in a Vault
I get to draw a lot of glowy things lately! This is a cover illustration for yesterday’s New York Times Sunday Business section. The story is about the Geneva Freeport - the largest impregnable storage operation for art collectors in the world. “How much art is stockpiled in the Geneva Freeport? Nobody knows…it is widely believed that there is enough art tucked away on the premise to create one of the world’s greatest museum.” Read the entire article here.
Thank you AD Minh for such a fun assignment!!
This piece was in yesterday’s New York Times about “dealing with internet distractions” (story of my life), read the article here. I had tons of fun coming up with all the internet creatures. Thank you AD Minh Uong, always a pleasure to work with!
Meltdown in Motherland for the NYT
I did this quickie (one day turn around) for the New York Times Op-Ed anxiety section the past Friday. The story is about postpartum anxiety/depression, you can read the story here. It was not the happiest story/image for the Mother’s day weekend, but I really wanted to give my mom a hug after I finished this piece. A big shout out to all the moms: thanks for everything, you are the best!
Many thanks to AD Alexandra Zsigmond!
Cover Art for the NYT Mutual Fund Quarterly
Crazy Eyes, New York Times.
I drew some crazy eyes for New York Times’s Sunday Technology page. The article is online now and will be in this Sunday’s paper. (March 18th). Many bifocal glasses wearers have to bob their heads up and down for the right focuses when looking at computer screens, a new type of lens is introduced to ease this strain.
Due to time constrain, AD Minh and I started working on this piece before the article was written. So we only had a rough concept to work with. Minh liked what I did with the “The ghost of tax return” for the NYT a month back and suggested we could use a similar approach to show someone staring at the screen with their head bobbing up and down. I usually like to come up with my own ideas, but this time I found the idea suggested very fun and was happy to play along. It turned out to be a great collaboration, thanks Minh for all the insightful inputs!
