I had the honor of working with the advertising firm Hill Holiday on branding and illustrating Bank of America’s Winter Village at Bryant Park. The illustrations were used for entry pylons throughout the park, dasher boards (along the boards of the ice rink), light towers, entrance gates, barricade covers, and a bunch of promotion materials, […]Read more "Daniel Hertzberg – Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park"
It’s been a little while, I hope you’ve been well! Here’s a long overdue update. This was a full-pager for Forbes magazine several months ago, for a profile and interview with “Dread Pirate Roberts,” the anonymous and highly secretive drug lord of the website Silk Road- the largest illegal drug market website in the world. Using […]Read more "Daniel Hertzberg: Autumn Update"

Many many sketches were made for this one… maybe half of them are below. I tried using Russian cathedral architecture as flames and […]Read more "Daniel Hertzberg: The New Yorker: A Good Day to Die Hard"
I had the honor of illustrating a film review for “Gangster Squad” in the New Yorker this week. There was also a review for “Jack Reacher” in the article. Both of these films are ultra-violent, unfortunately. So it makes me happy that this piece doesn’t actually show any guns, only used ammo and shadows. Lots […]Read more "Daniel Hertzberg – The New Yorker: Gangster Squad"
