Bobby Doherty's pop-referenced editorial illustrations for the Best of New York section of the New York Magazine are worth taking note of.

His pictorial illustrations are of evenly spaced items that are the same in form and varied in colors. He references the two significant names in the pop art movement, Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud by visually quoting their visionary emphasis on mass production.

Doherty created a six piece photo series for different sections of the magazines namely, eating, fun & nightlife, home & help, shopping and help & self. He placed high heels for shopping, colorful shots for eating and toys for the kids section.

The work acutely stands out of where it is placed on the magazine for it is electrifying, fun and vibrant form.
