Daniel Fishel – New Work

Thing’s have been pretty busy in the studio. I can’t show everything but here are a few things that recently published in the last two weeks.

This is a piece for the Globe & Mail about how the author went to give a DNA test and list out their family history to understand the road ahead in terms of genetic diseases. When the author’s family history is a bit fragmented, it makes predicting the future a bit unclear.

Here is a spot illustration I did for Honolulu magazine about a string of illegal casinos posing as ‘adult arcades’, that have been popping up in neighborhoods in Hawaii.

Lastly, here is a piece I did for the Washington Post’s Book review of the book, “The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving.” In the book a middle aged man faced with the difficulty of acquiring employment, talks his way into becoming a caregiver. While dealing with his own baggage he attempts to convince a 19 year old with a degenerative disease to look forward to a future that they both know is not bright. He takes him on a series of trips throughout the state of Washington to not only build a bond with the kid but also to help him better understand himself. In this piece I show the young man’s wheelchair spokes breaking off and cutting into the caregiver’s legs. This symbolizes both the deterioration of the 19 year old and the effect this has on the caregiver.
Thanks for reading!
