My latest NY Observer cover is on newsstands today. The article ties in the 50th anniversary of the musical Annie with the unlikely idea that anyone can be rich one day. Here's Mitt "Daddy Warbucks" Romney, Honey Boo Boo and her pet pig Glitzy. Thanks to Ed at the Observer for a fun assignment.

I submitted four sketches, seen here, and they ultimately chose the marathon runner theme, seen in sketch #2.
One more image you might be interested in, early on throughout the process the idea had been to make the final art much darker and gloomier. A late editorial decision resulted in me changing the background and overall lighting entirely to something a lot happier (think--Wizard of Oz, as I was told). I have to admit I kind of miss the cool stormy sky I painted below, but I'm overall very happy with how this turned out. It was a lot of fun and I hope to get a chance to work with Ted again soon.
