The Technology Issue

"The Technology Issue," The L Magazine, November 19- 25, 2008

My first cover! I did this for Cecilia over at the L Magazine for their technology issue. This was a fun assignment- I love drawing scenes from the past but I'd never before realized what a blast it is to design the future. It was quite a challenge too- reference is scarce.

The Wettest County in the World

"The Wettest County in the World," The New York Times Book Review, November 9, 2008
Matt Bondurant’s second novel is inspired by his family's bootlegging past. Nicholas Blechman was nice enough to let me choose which sketch to develop into the final illustration. As much as I enjoyed drawing the still and other moonshine paraphernalia, I decided to go with the more dramatic scene mentioned in Lousia Thomas' review.

(Don't worry- he survives his wound by trekking 12 miles to the nearest hospital!)

WFoF Header

If you haven't had a chance to check out Welcome Friend or Foe recently, Emily has been redesigning the blog's look. Drew did the first header for the site and he set the bar high. Tomby followed suit and I decided it was time to join in on the fun.

Happy Birthday, Jordie!
