Making Yuko jealous...

A great project landed on my desk a few weeks back, the cover for the United Airlines in-flight magazine Hemispheres. Most artist are aware of United Airlines' incredible visual identity and advertising over the past few years. It is wonderful to work for a company who decided that a humungous panda in the ocean was a great way to tell a story about visiting San Diego.

Travel pieces are tough in an editorial context because many times the article has much more to do with a vibe and less of a clear conceptual thesis. So, all of my ideas were focused around the beach and surf culture of souther california.

Golden Oldies

Paste Magazine is running an online review of Bob Dylan drawings from their past issues, and one of my drawings from yesteryear made a cameo.

This was my very first commission from Paste. So long ago, that I was the one who called Jose to ask for some work, because I was a subscriber and liked the content! My work has changed for the better, since way back in 2003.

I'm huge in Taiwan

From Taiwan's DPI Magazine, a eight page feature on my work. If any of you are fluent in Mandarin, please read this and make sure it isn't full of anti-John Brown propaganda.

Good news from American Illustration 28- A record for me, with three images selected to appear in the forthcoming annual. Even better, two images from my sketchbook series, "Drawing In Church" ... I love that these images get some dap outside of my blog (and the folks next to me in the pew).

Space Junk

Another entry in my Popular Mechanics series "Astronauts Doing Silly Things" - this drawing is for an article about the hazards of space junk. Did you know the government tracks over 19,000 pieces of space junk?

Maps! In German!

The German edition of Runner's World asked me to do an illustrated map for a running course in Germany. Finally, a professional use for Google Earth!
