CLEARANCE SALE! Selections from the Vault

I updated my website proper this week with some new items on the For $ale page. Thanks to a connection with a great Giclee printer on the west coast, and so have a few new prints available for purchase. Also, I've posted some original art from the archives. Much of this is from previous shows and exhibitions- I'd love if it found a place on your wall. Let's make a deal.

Moon Mortgages

A drawing for Popular Mechanics. Countries are forbidden, due to a pre-Apollo interstellar treaty, from claiming lunar property. But, corporations are not bound to such treaties... 21st century LAND RUSH!

Logotype Nostalgia

A mark for my church, Grace & Peace fellowship, that I finished up a few weeks back. Thought it would be fun to post. I used to do this stuff all the time when I held the job title 'designer/coffee-getter' before my life as an illustrator. It's always enjoyable to flex this muscle every now and then.

Concept Pictionary

Lets play a game.
Can anyone suss out the meaning of this illustration? Now, it was done for a rather theology heavy article appearing in the June issue of Christianity Today- so the metaphor is a bit abstract. Pithy visuals for spiritual concepts aren't exactly dime-a-dozen. (Thus the need Jesus saw for his parables. As I stated once before, he would make a great illustrator. And clearly he had a penchant for mark-making: see John, Ch. 8. Or this rare photo... Attentive church go-ers may get a slight advantage on this one.

Drawing in Church - 3/16 & 2/24

I forgot to post this one from New York a few weeks back.
Also, the new one from Sunday.

Drawing In Church-3/9

A slight delay in posting this week's pew doodles- had a few crows and cowboys I had to clear out beforehand.

This drawing taken from one of the most bizarre, haunting and enchanting passages in all of the Old Testament (which is saying something), the Dry Bones Dance...

More Birds

Another one for Paste Magazine- an album review for the Counting Crows.

Eyewitness Video: The Billboard

Ok, this is the last post about the billboard.

If you go look here, you can enjoy a video of me seeing the giant drawing for the first time in NYC with my friends Kirk and Sarah.

Red River

I always love doing this job for the New Yorker. The drastic horizontal and tiny format is such a challenge. The image serves as a header that runs over a weekly movies and cultural events calendar in the Goings-On-About-Town section. This time, to highlight the 60th anniversary of John Wayne's western Red River, I had a great excuse to hit the town on a thursday night in search of a copy of the film.

IAM Conference Sketchbook

A selection of pages from last weekend. I attended the IAM Conference in New York, where there is much to learn and plenty to draw. Take a gander- I burnt up a full set of microns.
