news from m.glenwood

It's been ages since I last sent out a mailer,
thanks to a schedule that's kept my nose to the grindstone.
Hopefully the new year will be equally productive but a little less hectic.
Here's a little roundup of recent news.

Two pieces accepted in Illustration West:
Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles Juried Exhibition

Museum Piece—an illustration created for the Los Angeles Times about a new approach to curating museum shows that involves quick turnaround exhibits that focus on unique, less common themes rather than the more traditional chronological overview of art or broad stylistic movements.

Museum Piece was also selected as a winner in Creative Quarterly 50, which will be published in May of 2018.

Also created for the Los Angeles Times, "Head in the Cloud" accompanied an article about the numerous choices available for listening to streaming music.

Just Because It's Cold Out There (14° in Richmond as I write this)

"Ice Flows" was created for the New Yorker Magazine's Blown Covers blog. The theme was "climate change" (titled "Baby It's Hot Out There") and envisioned global warming so severe that air conditioning might be needed at the polar cap.


Four pieces in Creative Quarterly 50

I am pleased to have four pieces accepted into the juried illustration journal Creative Quarterly 50. They will be published in Creative Quarterly 50—and go live online—in May 2018. These include Museum Piece (shown above) as well as the following three illustrations.

Chain Gang was done for the National Labor Federation's 2018 calendar, an annual project for which I've regularly created pro-bono pieces for many years. The theme was "prison labor," which amounts to a form of invisible slavery that disproporionately affects minorities.

Sometimes I get carried away when providing sketches to clients. This illustration—"Leadership"—was based on one of nine sketches I provided a client, for a publication on the theme of team leadership and collaboration. The client—a large investment firm—was torn as to which sketch to go with, and eventually opted for two finished pieces rather than one; and this was not one of them. But I liked it, and—as I so often do—decided take it to final on my own.

"Train Tracking" was cover art created for a consulting firm's report on European efforts to measure the year-to-year progress of the European rail system.
