Illustrations for The Nation
posted: April 7, 2009
These are two pictures I did for The Nation this week. The first one (above) is to illustrate an article by Emma Sokoloff-Rubin called "When Culture Trumps Law", which details the obstructionist efforts of doctors in Brazil when rape victims come to them for legal abortions. You can read the article here. The second one (below) is for an article called, "Guantanamo at Home" by Jeanne Theoharis; with the proposed closing of Guantanamo, it takes a hard look at the harsh treatment of terror suspects in prisons on American soil. You can read the article here. The articles provided plenty of food for thought -- and ideas for the pictures to accompany them.
