For 2 years I was the sole art director for the local alt weekly. Every week we put out an issue no matter what. It was a wild ride of furloughs, budget cuts, layoffs and the beginning of the recession. But at the same time it was a great time to cover news in the city. The Phillies were on the verge of a World Series win and Obama was about to get elected. On top of it, I was lucky enough to collaborate with some great writers, photographers and artists.
