another food cover
This cover for "Corn & Capitalism" has an interesting story. I had done a piece for the Op-Ed page of the New York Times dealing with the US corn industry and it's pervasive power. A while after that editorial ran, I got a call from The University of North Carolina Press. They had seen the Op-Ed and thought the drawing dove-tailed perfectly with a book they were releasing... so, the strange corn drawing got a second life. If only all of my the illustrations would circle back for a second bow. Once in a while these little bonuses crop up (insert corny joke here).
