Storm's a-comin'
I went to the New York Comic Con two weeks ago– and boy was it overwhelming. But it was also inspiring– I realized don't have nearly enough drawings of the comic-book characters I love. I grew up in a house full of boys who read comics and watched Star Trek, and having always been interested in making pictures, I looked at comics before I even read them. My brothers were avid Marvel comics fans, and, therefore, so was I. One of my favorite books was X-Men, and I really loved when Storm, the leader of the X-Men, fought Callisto for control of the underground, even-more-outcast-than-the-X-Men mutants, the Morlocks. After Storm successfully beat Callisto, and went to Japan and met Wolverine's lady-love, the free-spirited Yukio, she gave herself a rebellious new look– a punk mohawk with a leather & studs get-up. Rad! (And way cooler than Hallie Berry.)

Whole Foods Market Chelsea Tee Shirt Design
This is a design for the first-ever Whole Foods Market Chelsea Store Tee Shirt! I was happy to design it. The tee was given out to Team Members at a Team Member appreciation event (with ice cream!) today. The Chelsea store was the first Whole Foods Market to open in New York City, and now there are 5 stores in Manhattan, with more on the way. Chelsea may not be as flashy as the other stores anymore, but it's got a great neighborhood feel. We wanted to present that in the design, so we went with an old-school palette of browns and copper, and a seventies-style font, and of course, the ubiquitous yellow cab.
