We currently have a story coming in about the food stamp cuts and the health are damage that can cause children. A simple illustration, black and white, of an empty bowl, perhaps, or something straightforward, could be a major piece of art in the paper. This deadline for this particular piece is Tuesday, Jan. 28. We work on pretty tight deadlines.

We can pay a flat rate for quality work, which could be with stories or as standalone graphics. Pay is to be determined.
