Made this crazy drawing last week...spans across three 8.5" x 11" sheets of paper. The whole drawing started with the cat on the left and just kept expanding to the right...I didn't plan anything ahead of time or have any pencil under-drawing. I definitely want to make more work like this!

I did this series of comedian portraits for The Dirty Durty Diary, a high-end/luxury/fashion/art/lifestyle magazine. Their most recent issue was all about comedy, so I was asked to create portraits of some of the featured funnymen and funnywomen. I don't ever really listen to stand up comedy, but for this assignment I thought I should probably hear some of their jokes before I went ahead and drew them...and I actually really enjoyed it! Bill Hicks was my favorite....his little bit on marketing is too good not to share:

I designed this image to be used both as a flyer and a graphic for a totebag for the upcoming party/concert in Harsimus Graveyard in Jersey City! Bands will be performing as other bands and there will be food and general creepiness!! I really really have been wanting a leather jacket with spikes and studs and patches...if anyone knows of a good place to get one, let me know. I've considered making one myself but I don't trust myself not to destroy a leather jacket.

NOWNESS.com is having a competition to illustrate any one of Haruki Murakami's books or short stories...which is super exciting for me since he is one of my favorite authors. I chose his short story, "On seeing the 100% perfect girl one beautiful April morning." I submitted the drawing directly below, although did the first one kinda as an experiment/study. That one was done completely on the iPad...something difficult for me, but very fun. If you are curious to read the story, click here.

I designed this t-shirt graphic for the Yellow Bird Project, a charity that invites bands to design/sell t-shirts and have the proceeds go to a cause of their choice. This time around they are asking illustrators to design tees and the proceeds will got to the Yellow Bird Project, so they can keep afloat and allow these charities to keep getting $$ from their other tees. When it's up for sale I'll re-post and let you guys know! :) For now, enjoy.
