This is a tear sheer from the Chicago Tribune. It features one of my Illustrations with a Clarence Page opinion piece about the harsh rhetoric, specifically from Conservative commentators, in reaction to a speech and article by Bill Clinton on the 15th Anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. It's a very excellent piece at that.
I featured this Illustration in an earlier blog entitled "Can We Talk?". The blog features a color version of this Illustration and some thoughts on it's development.
Further down the page you can see a very excellent Illustration by fellow Illustrator and friend John Overmyer. His art is used to accompany a quotation from Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis. I haven't seen an Illustration used to go with a single quotation before in a paper. Very innovative and interesting idea.
