New piece for The Progressive about leftist / activist soccer players who share their views (apposing tyranny and selfish top down politics) by playing a unique approach to the game where there are no winners. The game isnt about whos ahead, its about the way the game is played. An icon on top of
a soccer trophy being pulled down like overthrown dictator ( i referenced the infamous Saddam statue) was a perfect visual overlap.
New personal piece about the heavy workload i've been juggling since i started teaching in September. My priority is freelancing, so it sometimes feels like its all just really piling up. Had this idea in the vault from a previous project - felt like a great fit.
Piece in todays LA Times "LA Affairs" section, about a woman whos fiance keeps cheating on her. He even cheats on the girls he's cheating with. To get married she's going to have to really ignore a lot of her instincts. Tried to come up with a cool way of showing the wedding aspect - but have the visual pun still revolve around her putting up "blinders".
Thanks to Wes for the great assignment - hes always the best to work with.
