Meeting art directors

So I met 12 art directors in total this week. 5 at Fortune magazine, 1 at Forbes magazine, and 6 at the wall street journal. so far i have found that meeting art directors in person doesn't help me at all, maybe because I look so young or that i'm just so g-darn ugly. Something good better come out of these meetings or I will severely disappointed.

this is for an article about this guy who was in prison and wrote a book on slang. One of the slang terms in prison if someone is protesting and refuses to take showers is that he is going "viking". So thats that. I wish it wasnt due over night because this one could have been so awesome. How often do you get to do a viking illustration? probably never again in my life.

quick painting

I have been sketching these geometric animals on the train for the past two weeks and plan on painting some of them. this was a quick experiment to see if it would be a cool worthwhile project, so i think it looks like it would be cool if i spent more than 10 mintues on it and more than just left over paint on the pallete. only thing is these don't really look like my style so im working on a way to incorporate that

Cleveland magazine 2/3 page illo

This article was about 4 people who had really bad salaries in state positions and now have really good salaries working in the private sector so the art directors idea was they're springing/jumping to higher salary levels.

Me and Diana both have 1 piece each in an art show called "everybody! Make some Noise"with a protest sign theme. It's gonna be at the white room in williamsburg brooklyn. the pieces all had to be around 30"x 40" inches so it's pretty huge. Each piece will be mounted on a stick just like a real protest sign! there are 25 designers, illustrators, painters, artists, weirdos, etc... in the show and theres gonna be live punk band performances and who know's what else. down side is it's $7 but come out if you can make it.
