↑ Cover Mock-up of the unpublished December 2014 issue of the New Republic.
I was thrilled to receive this commission from the New Republic. After a long week tweaking the likenesses, I pulled an all-nighter to make my deadline. Just as I was emailing the file, I heard this on NPR: "Whatever you do this holiday season, you will not spend your down time flipping through the December issue of The New Republic. That issue of the magazine was canceled after many key staff members resigned late last week..." Dumfounded, I uploaded the file anyway, hit "send," and finally went to sleep.
I'm bummed this will never see print, but having the opportunity was an honor.
↑ After discovering the Bush family dogs had passed away, I opted to feature the lesser-known Bush family cats.
