Black Narcissus

Okay, a new piece coming up in the Halloween edition of the New Yorker. Cover date should be 31Oct11.

This one is for the movie “Black Narcissus.” I have never seen the movie. I didn’t have time to see the movie before the illustration deadline. So, I went solely by the source images Mr Awan sent me.

I hope the movie is as good as the illustration I came up with. Know what I mean?

Southern Comfort

I just whipped up this poster in a two night frenzy.

My good friend Takuya runs a design business in Tokyo. He was hired by Southern Comfort (yes, the liquor company) to do some design work. Part of his job was promotional work for a party they are sponsoring to kick off Design Week in Tokyo, which is 01Nov-06Nov11. Takuya hired me to do the postcard and poster for the party in exchange for a future trip to Japan. So…

Here is the poster:
The postcard is basically the bottom half of the poster, but in black and white:

Festivals Galore

In conjunction with AthensPopFest the fine boys of Fluke have organized an arts and comics flea market of sorts for this Saturday, 15Oct11. If anyone is in Athens this weekend or inclined to come to Athens you can find me and my comics at OctöberFLUKE. It will be held at the Classic Center between 10am-6pm. Man or Astroman and the Dead Milkmen will be playing the 40Watt that night and Masters of the Hemisphere and Olivia Tremor Control will play Friday. So, if you are looking to make a weekend of it in Athens without the fall football crowds this would be the weekend to do it. I hope to see you there!

In other festival news my good friend Gabriella Gomez-Mont recently directed a documentary film entitled “El Hombre Que Vivió en un Zapato” or “The Man Who Lived in a Shoe.” The film evocatively dives into the abysses of a true eccentric’s life in Mexico. By turns banal and fantastic it is well worth a viewing by any of you fascinated by the extremes of the human condition. Well, the film got accepted into an international film festival in Mexico, I am not even sure which one, and Gabriella asked me to do the poster for it. So, below, you will find my very first film poster!
