“The Information”

“The Information” is a new book written by James Gleick. It tells the story of the human effort to store, access, and communicate information. It also discusses new information theories, as well as a historic review of early messaging techniques and forms of information storage. The prompt sent to me from Carrie Lyle at The Washington Post was quite open, and the book provided a multitude of visual options to work with. “The Information” is a book about information, communication, and the key to unlocking many kingdoms of human interaction. Here is a link to a review of “The Information” written by Anthony Grafton. Thanks Carrie!

The Education Issue…

Earlier this month Josue Evilla, at The Boston Globe Magazine called me with a really fun assignment. This issue of the magazine was a special edition focusing on education. Josue asked if I could make a bunch of small icons that represented all types of different free services available to the community in college towns. The prompt was really open ended and I had fun running through this many images. Thanks Josue!

Commerce

I’ve opened a web store here. I plan on supplying it with personal projects, hand transferred posters, and some other types of prints. Below is the newest edition, an 8.5″ x 11″ print made with xerox transfer and desktop printing.

Nature

Last month I worked on a few pieces for Nature magazine. The articles I illustrated were based on cancer prevention, medication, diet, and lifestyle. The good folks at Nature were kind enough to send me a copy of the issue, so here are some shots of my work in print. Many thanks to Barbara Izdebska, and Herb Brody. You can also view these new pieces on my site.

Society of News Design…

Over the past year, I’ve been lucky to work with Josue Evilla, and Grant Staublin at The Boston Globe on a fairly regular basis. The stories they forward me to illustrate are always interesting, and the two are always open to my ideas, and images. I’ve really enjoyed each job that we’ve worked on together, and last week I got an email from Grant that was really an icing on the cake type of email. The guys at The Globe submitted a portfolio to the Society of News Design, and were selected as the winners of an “Award of Excellence”. I was thrilled to hear that my work was included in the award winning portfolio, and even more excited to hear that my work was side by side with illustrators such as Harry Campbell, Alex Nabaum, and Emiliano Ponzi. Obviously I was in amazing company with those three. It’s rewarding enough to work with people like Josue and Grant, and being included in their award winning portfolio with some illustrators that I really look up to is pretty special.


My most recent piece for The Boston Globe, for an article entitled “If We Build It They Will Come”.

The Times…

Today I have an Op-ed illustration running in The New York Times. The article, written by LAKHDAR BRAHIMI and THOMAS R. PICKERING is entitled “Settling the Afghan War”, and proposes ways to implement an international third party that could broker a peace settlement. You can read the article here, and see my illustration below. Thanks Gary!

Power in Numbers

On Friday I participated in the “Power in Numbers” exhibition at the Chicago Art Department. The group show features designers, and illustrators from many different pockets of the world. Each participant was asked to create an 18 x 24 print that was inspired by the theme “Power in Numbers”. The show runs until March 25. Below is my poster, thanks to Jason and Mike for including me in the show.

Letters…

It’s been a while since I did a piece for the letters section of The New York Times. I was happy to receive a call yesterday morning though, and enjoyed the rush of the single day turnaround that goes along with illustrating the column. The illustration is below and the corresponding letters can be read here. Thanks Alexandra!

Midnight Cowboy…

This is an 8.5″ x 11″ color xerox and acetone transfer print I made of a quote that caught my ear while watching the film “Midnight Cowboy”. I should have it up for purchase somewhere fairly soon.

Border Crossers

Recently I was asked by my great pals Fogelson-Lubliner to create a few spot illustrations for an organization called “Border Crossers”. Border Crossers is a non-profit organization that builds partnerships between schools in New York City. Gary and Phil did a marvelous job creating a new identity for the organization as well as a new website and printed communication materials. It’s always great working with friends, and helping an organization that undertakes such an honorable task is an added bonus.
Here are some of the items we created together, many thanks to Gary and Phil.
