The Illustrated Letter

Yesterday was an event at The New York Times, a show of four decades of Letters Page illustrations. These small vignettes got a great showcase on the walls and I was thrilled to see three of my pieces in there. They even blew up one of them into this giant size (the diabetes illustration with the syringe). Many thanks to all those lovely people at The Times!

New York Times Op-Ed Illustration

I had the pleasure to illustrate an Op-Ed by the great Paul Auster for today's New York Times. It's about the student protests at Columbia University in 1968. Today, on the anniversary of the sit-in, Auster tells it from his own perspective since he himself was part of it. You can check it out here.

Sketch from a personal series about travelling, space and destinations.
While surfing the interweb I recently came across concepts for enormous cruise ships on which you can buy luxury condos and appartments for permanent residence. This was a fascinating concept to me, and lead to this little drawing.

Here's a look at the production process of Germany's great comic-anthology Panik Elektro.

Can you spot my vignette on the back cover?

It was selected by the jury for American Illustration here in New York City and will be apperearing in American Illustration 27, one of the finest publications in the industry.

And it was also selected for the Communication Arts 2008 Illustration Annual on the West Coast, another major publication that collects some of the best work from the entire year.

Metal Man - The Book!

I've just received my first copy of Metal Man, a picture book by Aaron Reynolds that I illustrated throughout 2007. The book turned out great, the people at Charlesbridge worked hard to make it a wonderful result. It's beautifully written and highly recommended–not just for children! It comes out July 1st and you can pre-order your copy here.

I'll be signing copies of Metal Man at the MoCCA Art Festival, June 7th-8th, 2008, Puck Building, NYC
