Cover for New York Observer

Finished the illustration yesterday, and today it's already on the newsstand, that's part of the excitement of doing editorial illustration. It was a little hard to find a copy here in Greenpoint though… The topic of this illustration is Emily Smith, who'll be heading the famous gossip column Page Six at the New York Post.

Idea & Art Direction by Shelley Camhi, many thanks for the great collaboration!

Website Update

It's been a while, but I've finally updated my website!

Since I have my blog, the updates on my actual website have been less frequent, I feel that's been a general trend in the field. The blog has all current news and projects, since it's so easy to update. The website is still the place to go to get a comprehensive look at somebody's work, not just a snapshot.

I managed to update all the galleries. There are four new pieces in Editorial Color, six new pieces in Editorial B/w, and in the Children's section there are images from my forthcoming new children's book, The Woods, plus a bunch of other new stuff! In the Sequential section, there are a ton of new pages, including from the graphic novel I'm currently illustrating, Peanut. And I've even managed to dig out a really old piece for the Experimental section.

Hope you'll enjoy it and as always, thanks for looking!

Ink Plots Graphic Novel Exhibition

I'm very honored to be part of this upcoming show:

Ink Plots: The Tradition of the Graphic Novel at School of Visual Arts is an exhibition of original drawings, books, prints and animations by over 100 artists. Ink Plots traces the development of sequential art over four decades with selections from SVA faculty members and showcases the work of SVA alumni who are pushing the boundaries of the graphic novel today.

Ink Plots is curated by department chairs Thomas Woodruff and Marshall Arisman. It will be a massive show with an incredible line-up. There will be many books on display, and also a lot of original pages. So don't miss the opportunity to see work from the masters of this medium!

Amongst my humble contributions will be some original pages from my German graphic novel Die Schlange (The Snake), which will be on display for the first time ever.

Visual Arts Gallery
