Ariane Mnouchkine


"Ariane Mnouchkine," The New Yorker, July 27, 2009

Here's a portrait of Ariane Mnouchkine, director of "Les Éphémères." The turnaround for this illustration was fast- I went straight to finish so no 'behind the scenes' this time.

Thanks as always, Max!

Dimebag 3

I was asked to participate in "Dimebag 3," a group show curated by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens. More than 200 artists were given a 3" by 3" plastic bag to fill. Here's how I filled mine:
"His 'n Hers," ink on cut paper (two works in a single bag), 2009

The original Dime Bag shows, numbers 1 and 2, were exhibited at The Front Room gallery in Brooklyn and New Image Art in Los Angeles.

The show opens this month at Giant Robot in New York.
