Sorry to be so MIA the last little bit, - I just returned from a few weeks spent in NY and at the ICON illustration conference. A little about that: EVERYONE I met was so lovely - and many standouts within that group. I seriously had the best time. Thanks to Dan and Chris for rooming with me. Im feeling really inspired, and excited to try a bunch of new work directions. Anyway I need to get back to posting work, cause theres a crazy surplus built up -
Heres the start - recently i did the cover for Harvard's alumni
magazine. It was a great challenge, as the image had to represent 3
separate articles clearly. Fortunately, the each bit of writing seemed
to have one thing in common: Americas damaged democracy. I tinkered
around a LOT, and tried to come up with an image that showed democracy
in trouble, and Americas attempts to band aid it with various
bureaucracy. In a fortunate visual overlap, i realized the stripes on
the flag could double as red tape - and thats how we got to this idea! -
Fun one, i think. I will also quickly say I needed to leave a large
area on the left for a scan code to be placed, which made this
composition a bit tricky.
and some of the 24 different ideas i sent in. i know, 24 is silly - but with great subject matter who wants to stop, right?!
