I thought it was high time for an update on some recent work for various clients, including myself. First, here’s a new illustration I’ve had a lot of fun working on bit by bit in between commissions. I really enjoyed geeking out on the little details, especially those sweet shoes. Now I want a pair for myself.
Summer is approaching fast, and so I was inspired to create this personal piece that I’ll be sending out as promo postcards over the next week. I chose the theme of Summer Reading because I’ve always wanted to do one of those for a client and decided to just go ahead and make one for myself.
In addition, I am also offering this image in the form of prints, t-shirts, tote bags, coffee cups, pillows, iPhone cases, shower curtains and other products in my Society6 shop.
I got the call from Art Director Cheyne Gately for a quick turnaround on this illustration for Variety. The article is about filmmakers learning to be better at budgeting their movies. I fired off a handful of ideas quicker than I have in a long time and we moved forward with this idea. I love working with the folks at Variety and hope to again soon.
The Latest in an ongoing commission for Intelligence Squared US, for a debate about the constitutionality of unlimited spending as a form of political speech.
