Flora/ Fauna

November 21, 2011

A student recently asked why I draw so many animals and plants and my answer, to the best of my understanding, is that it’s what was around when I was growing up. I only mention that because here are two new images that involve both! Shazam, I guess the student is on to something!

First image is about having luck in the workplace and was for “your favorite illustrator’s favorite publication*”. The second is for a fun project from some designers in Germany. My job was to visually interpret a quote (go figure) from a German musician which will then be screen printed and sold on t-shirts. That’s the short version of the project, for more information go here. My design will be available in the next 2 months, I believe.  I took the opportunity to make a full on painting and then translate it to a screen print friendly version. The quote is “I am the horseman”.

I should probably thank my studio mate for this. She did a painting of some flytraps that has been staring at me for the past 9 months. I couldn’t help myself…

WAR AND POLITICS

November 8, 2011

Hi Webby…

Ah, two pieces that seem fitting to post next to each other I’d say. First, an image for The Utne Reader about a new video game set to be released in which the gamer is not actually a soldier but a “media guy” filming the action. The second, an illustration about memories from one of Nixon’s early speech writers; a very interesting article that I really enjoyed working with (Penn Gazette).

I wonder if war based articles will start phasing out now… my guess is no.
