Chris Gash – July update

I just posted some recent work from The Wall Street Journal, Corporate Knights (thanks, Pete!) and others, including this illustration from Sunday’s NYT Book Review. This was a nice change for me – a simple narrative image drawn in pencil. The silo was just a stencil I cut out and inked with a brayer (thanks, Keith!).

One of the things I love about the Book Review is that I never feel confined to a certain kind of solution. This one goes waaaay back to when I still watercolored everything. It was about a woman who recorded her family history through quilts:

This was a satire of a WPA image during the bailouts in 2008 and 2009:

This was for a book about a teacher moonlighting as a driver who delivers prostitutes to their appointments, and eventually ends up driving one of his students:

This one was so simple I got to do it as a quick silkscreen:

The Book Review continues to be one of my favorite spots to work and it’s been a privilege to work with both Heller and Nicholas. Thanks for reading!
