keegan


Here’s an illo for The New York Times that I busted out last week for their Sunday regional section. Since I recently became a huge fan of “Top Chef”, I was excited to illustrate Jodi Rudoren’s fun essay on how there ought to be a “Home Cooks” edition of the popular cooking show. Quickfire and elimination challenges that would make the TV contestants wither go on every day in a house full of hungry family members. Note the Dad playing the part of the poor-man’s Tom Colicchio at the dinner table. Art direction by the always-pleasant Richard Weigand.

Art direction by Richard Weigand.

nyt_61_yanks.jpg
This is a piece I did for The New York Times this week. It is running in Sunday’s “The City” section (of the New York edition). The author Thomas R. Pryor waxes nostalgic about a day in 1961 when his father and uncles took him to see the Yankees play the Red Sox. One of his uncles knew Luis Arroyo, the pitcher, and the author got lifted over the fence to hang out in the bullpen, and was awestruck by the pinstriped giants. Art direction by the always agreeable Richard Weigand.
