Happy 100th Woody Guthrie!

I was asked by eMusic to create a Woody Guthrie map based on 20 of his songs for his 100th birthday. I am amazed by what a huge influence Woody Guthrie was, and continues to be for so many other artists. I'm glad I got to know a bit more about him by researching the map, songs and his life. Thanks eMusic and happy 100th Woody!

Chalk is Fun!

I was happy to escape the heat for a few hours and draw the new menu for One Girl Cookies in Dumbo, Brooklyn. It was fun using chalk as a new medium and hope to try it again...but writing all these refreshing drinks really made me thirsty. I'll have the iced latte please!

Mural for One Girl Cookies

I loved working on this Mural Project for the amazing Bakery and Cafe One Girl Cookies in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Not only was I allowed to use some of their priceless family photos in the design but I also had my fill of whoopee pies. Thanks One Girl Cookies! YUM!

Why I subscribe to 3x3 Magazine:

No other magazine influences, teaches or studies the field of Illustration as wonderfully as 3x3 magazine does. I was honored to make a " self portrait" for one of their ad campaigns asking " Why I subscribe to 3x3 Magazine." I tried to make my double chins as realistic as possible. It was a personal piece for me, as I wanted to show how much I admire others in our field and also combine that with my せごいsummer memory of brave children jumping from a bridge into the cool river below in Gujo Hachiman, Japan. Thanks 3x3! Thanks Gujo Hachiman!
