LA Times

This is a quick turn around for the LA times, It will be out in this sunday's paper in the sunday opinions column, running in b/w. I've just gotta the the NY Times now! the story is about healthcare reforms. I tried to make the nose a little different, i dont know if its working, but i have to do these little experiments to keep it fun for me.

Printmaking class

I am taking a printmaking class at FIT and it has been kind of a drag until this week. This is a self portrait assignment in woodblock form. I printed it this week and it came out looking pretty crazy/funny. its drying so next week ill post that up. so i am liking the class more now. but i dont think it worth it for all the hrs of carving wood. anyway i'll see how i do with linonleum. i think i should just start doing my own thing but the proffessor is such a nice guy i feel bad about going against the grain.

chico news and review cover

here is this weeks cover for the Chico News and Review. I had to change it to green because the the theme is green/sustainability on the inside. Interesting that they would call me for this one. I've worked with them before but im more of a people illustrator as opposed to a tree guy, but i suprised myself. Still like the red one better but oh well.

My Midwest magazine

this is a full page and a spot for Midwest airline's inflight magazine "my midwest" This is the first job i have gotten as a result of doing that art directors club illustration review day back in the summer. the article is about one bad apple in the office ruining the whole bunch. chain reaction stuff leading to bad behavior and performance in everyone. This came out different than my other stuff i guess.

jazz sketches

I finally got to a jazz club on sunday and sketched a couple of the players. They were a "latin jazz" group but their line up was weird. the lead was a trombone player. he was tall skinny and perfect for drawing. they had a trumpet, piano, upright bass, drums, and a conga player. i was happily suprised they were good. its "smoke" on 106 and broadway. i miss sketching and i miss live jazz, i should make it a sunday thing.

Westchester Magazine

for an article about how hard it is to start your own restaurant. this guy has to do accounting, paper work, contracts, market, promote, taste test, be a chef, cut red tape, etc.... one of the few times i have made up a face out of my head. also the first time i've signed the piece in the corner. was trying to go for a slightly different look this time.
