Bernie Madoff made for Time Magazine's 2009 100 List.
The guy at the stationary store didn't quite get my motivation for shredding dollar bills with his shredder...
Ma-dear wife Janet made the cute little money bags for me.

The snake is a killer HP. And it's also very funny (except if you had invested with Uncle Bernie). The worst thing that can happen to him now is for him to fully comprehend the pain he caused. Oh yes and to acquire the capacity for shame. Very fine piece.

I tried to post a "plus sign" ( ) but it didn't work.

Great selection of objects to create the features on the face. Very clever.

How you do it Hanoch, I do not know.
Amazing, dead-on likeness. The snake is incredible enough, but to me the party horn nose puts it into another dimension...

Thanks girls and guys.
It took Chrissy Dunleavy at Time and myself a while to arrive to an approved sketch. It is always much easier to ridicule a far-away Asian ruler.
Actually the snake was Chrissy's idea!

You most have had a blast doing this one. Actually it looks like you have a blast doing all your art.
The eyes and mouth sum it all up for Madoff.

One word: Greatness

In what other field would you be able to reach out and gain this kind of proximity to figures like Madoff? It's Time's story, but your visual commentary, and you're speaking directly to him.

CLASSIC PIVEN! Makes me want to go curl up with my copy of FACES.

This is an amazing illustration, Hanoch (and great idea on the snake mouth, Chrissy!)!

A beaut Hanoch.
Can you shred money without getting arrested? If so...I'm running out and shred me some...wait...I don't have to run out, my wife has a shredder (she uses it on my old underwear).

Awesome!, I saw your FP cover yesterday at Borders, it printed really nice. I couldn't believe how they held the saturation of the pink.The full page printed equally nice.
