This was an interesting year, marked by a deep recession, the inauguration of the first black US President, an heroic landing of a jet in the Hudson River, the collapse of our banking system, a giant ponzi scheme, Wall Street being bailed out and Main Street being shut out, the New York Yankees winning the world series, the passing of legendary thespians, artists and the king of pop, the escalation of a war in Afghanistan, and as of yet, no health care bill. I enjoyed doodling the people who drove said events, thanks to all who stopped by. I wish everyone a healthy happy holiday and a prosperous 2010.

    Wow, Larry, how very cool to see all your excellent 'doodles' in the context of one huge magnificent 'mural'! Gorgeous! Great work! It would make a great four-fold cover for Time magazine, don't you think? Or a wrap-around cover for the NY Times "Year in Review" edition! Let's hope some enlightened AD sees this and gets the same idea! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Best - Leif

    It's always amazing to see all of these--quite the body of work, Larry! Happiest of holidays to you and your family. I have totally enjoyed getting to know you through your wonderful work.

    This is extremely cool to see. Especially since I read your blog everyday and I remember most of these people's stories. Each portrait brings back the memory of the each news event. This is a great collection.

    Larry, Great work! What a year! I love seeing what you are doing. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas and a happy healthy New Year to you and your family! Love, Monique PS: I am going back to Paris this year to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. I am so excited.

    Love the Year in Review. Like Leif said, this would work well for a NYTimes Sunday Magazine cover or maybe NewsWeek.

    Nice one Larry, it really is quite something to see them all in a oner. Great to see you and Donna on Friday night. That was a good one.
