This piece is for a group promotion with a bunch of friends of mine, in anticipation of V-Day 2011.

Without a studio, I've taken to going to Starbucks to draw sometimes. The coffee helps, as does getting out of the house. This is a warm up sketch of a guy with one of those e-book readers - Still a strange concept to me.
Oh! Happy Hannukah, everyone! I haven't been home for this holiday in a few years now and it's been really great. Lots o' latkes, and at least one really successful party. It really is wonderful to share the holidays with family and friends.

I'm very excited to be participating in the Post-It Show (number 6!) this coming December, along with some good friends and a bunch of artists I really admire. The show will be at Giant Robot in Santa Monica, opening December 11th. I'll post more specifics later on.
Here are some of my initial experiments - I am not sure if they will be in the show yet (I'm still trying out several options), but I liked them enough to show you guys. Hope you dig.

This man sat perfectly still, and had glasses on his face AND hanging from his shirt collar. He was just begging to be drawn, despite a permanent grimace.
Thanks very much to Zach over at Supersonic Electronic for featuring me on his blog today.

Fun fact: as a child I was obsessed with tigers. I had a tiger poster up in my room, several stuffed tigers, the works. I thought they were the coolest. They are the coolest.
Unfortunately they are also really dwindling in numbers - in the past century a population of 100,000 has shrunk to around 3,500, and illegal traders are killing Tigers and selling their parts, killing around 1,000 more this decade.
This image was made in response to an article I read on the BBC - Check it out here.

Gouache & Crayon on board, 11 x 14
It's been really nice to focus on "traditional" work lately - I love working digitally and all the freedom it offers me but getting back to a single, tactile surface has been really rewarding. Hopefully I can carry that energy over into my illustration work as well.

Described in the Revelation of St. John, Abaddon is "the king of tormenting locusts and angel of the bottomless pit" (and sometimes considered to be the antichrist). Heavy, right? I'd been interested in drawing some of the darker/more mysterious figures (or monsters) from biblical scripture, and Abaddon seemed like a fun one to tackle first, given our mutual interest in insects.

Here's a poster for an upcoming show at Coco 66 in Brooklyn - thanks to Seva Granik!
(P.S. - these bands are really, really great. If any of you live in New York and are fans of ambient/synth music, I urge you to check this show out.)

ICON 6 was a great experience - I met some great people and some artists I really admire, attended some really fascinating lectures, and enjoyed the high life in a hotel entirely too fancy for me. The conference's open bar parties didn't hurt either.
I found this post-it on the ground sometime during the conference and stuck it inside a little notebook (which has one of my favorite pieces by my friend Jen on the cover) - if you drew it, tell me. I liked it.
Back to the grind!

Reworked my blog layout a bit in order to display larger images.
Here's a portrait of a friend from my sketchbook.
I'm heading to ICON tomorrow - which I'm looking forward to, especially since some really great friends of mine from MICA will be attending. See you later, internet!

I just realized I could post to my blog directly from flickr - (d'oh!) so here's my first test. About the image - I've been feeling a little stagnant in my sketchbook work, so I decided to pick the brush back up and try some new stuff, so....here's some ugly face.

Here's a new piece for the New York Times Book Review. Art Director: Nicholas Blechman
The book is "The Passage" by Justin Cronin - it's a hefty horror novel, set in a future where a virus has turned most of the world into vampires. 90-some humans remain in America, living in a fortified colony with permanent daylight, but the power source protecting them is running out. Check out the review here

For the New York Times Book Review - AD Nicholas Blechman
Here's my first post-graduation illustration assignment! I got the call as soon as the moving trucks left with all my belongings, heading back to California, so this was completed while I was sleeping on my buddy Willem's couch. Big thanks to him and Julia for letting me use their equipment!
