Illustration for NYC AudubonI just finished an illustration for the NYC Audubon educational newsletter for kids. This piece is accompanying an article about the wonders of fishing in the city. Just make sure the ones you catch don't have three eyes! ;)
Seriously, the NYC Audubon is a great non-profit organization that looks out for New York City's feathered friends and other important environmental concerns, and I was very happy to create this piece for them.

Half-Naked Blue-Haired Zombie Woman!New painting! This piece is based on characters described in Margaret Atwood's The Blind Assassin. I'm a big Atwood fan, and I loved the multiple story-within-a-story device used, especially the sci-fi pulp stories written by the 1930's & 40's leftist political fugitive in the story. The "nude women who've been dead for three thousand years, with lithe, curvaceous figures, ruby red lips, azure hair in a foam of tumbled curls, and eyes like snake-filled pits..." was a visual I couldn't pass up illustrating.

Commuter SketchHaving to work on a Sunday: crappy.
The train home being empty enough to sketch comfortably: eh, small consolation.
But still, a fun sketch.

Whoa! Old Sketchbook!

I recently found an old moleskine that I used in my last year or two of school. Most of the time I am so focused on being able to make new pictures that I rarely look at anything old. It's definitely a strange experience. I'm not too happy with the bar sketches, (my friends probably agree!) but it's okay, I guess. I do like Prospect Park, and my old apartment view from the fire escape. Anyway, kind of hard to put old stuff up here, but at the same time it's kind of fun for a change.
