The New York Times




From 2012-13 the New York Times' Opinion section published a series of essays, fiction, and art entitled Anxiety. As art director of the series, I commissioned original illustration for each essay, and helped shape the blog's content by commissioning comics, fiction, and visually-driven features. A selection of the art was showcased in an exhibition at the New York Times' Gallery 7 in 2013, and the series continued in 2015 with a collection of essays entitled Going Off. Anxiety was a collaboration with NYTimes editor and friend Peter Catapano.
