Awkward silence and still life with orange

I did my first illustration for a fiction piece in the New Yorker this week. It accompanies a story by Tessa Hadley. The piece will appear in the 07Feb11 edition.

Olympian Spreads pt 2

Here are a couple more spreads from “the Olympians.”

Hermes is one of my favorites. If you click to view larger you should be able to read it. This is the story in which Hermes kills the hundred-eyed giant Argus. I love the way Hermes is sidling up all buddy buddy to Argus in the image. But later…


And Poseidon? Well Poseidon is just the man. Check out his watery palace!

The Olympians: Gods of the Greeks

Almost two years ago Kristin asked me if I would draw something about the Olympian gods for her periodical Uncle Envelope. I have worked on it off and on since then, but the last two months saw me working vigorously to get it done. I was to put the coup de grace on the periodical’s two year run. Uncle Envelope has decided to take a much needed vacation and the Olympians will be the final mailing.

Kristin, Mary and I worked this weekend putting together the final books and stuffing envelopes. The books were mailed out on Saturday.

I am really happy with my final design. I plan to seek financial backing to publish a larger run on an offset press. Until then, enjoy some images. I also plan to post some larger images of a few of my favorite spreads soon.

Last blizzard of 2010

I keep forgetting to post this.

We Rays travelled down to the Dirty South for Christmas this year. The first time back home since 07.

Well, we had a flight for Sunday the 26th to return to Brooklyn.
But then there came a blizzard.
We were “stranded” in Georgia until Wednesday.

When we finally returned home this is what our car looked like.

There was even a raggedy Christmas tree buried underneath it!
