Since I left the Times six months ago my buddy Josh Cochran has swooped in and occasionally guest art directs the Op-Ed pages. In addition to Aviva (AD) and Alexandra’s (Asst. AD) big push to introduce new illustrators to the page Josh has also been giving new artists a chance. People that don’t appear in the editorial world very often… like, my mom and I.
I’ve worked with Josh a lot before but our roles in the past have always been reversed. He has a certain… how do I put it… pomo-illustrator-as-designer-style that works a little something like this (to protect our identities I have changed the names):
Juan Cochran: “It’s a story about late adopters to technology.”
Jennifer Kardashian: “Here is a rock-phone.”
Juan Cochran: “I like it. Let’s do it.”
