Here is a cover and some spot illustrations I did for last week's issue of the Boston Phoenix. I haven't worked with photo illustration in a while so it was lots of fun. Plus the story was cool. The Phoenix has annual Muzzle Awards, for those who stifle free speech the best in the Boston area.

Here's the cover. In case you are dim, Eagles represent freedom. Barbed wire on eagles = not freedom.




Here are four of the ten spots. Clockwise from the top left, they represent Police spying on internet and phone records, Newt Gingrich's hatred of freedom, A protest dubbed "keep you rosaries off my ovaries," and a sinister plot to cover up or take down the Citgo sign assaulting Boston's skyline with its' Communist insignia.
