Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
And happy to share news from the Society of Illustrators and Creative Quarterly.

Society of Illustrators 63: Painting the Light

It's always an honor to have a piece accepted into the Society of Illustrators annual exhibition. This was a personal piece—inspired by the pandemic lockdown—about artists bringing a bit of light into an otherwise bleak world. This piece was also recently recognized by Creative Quarterly, along with three others that appear below.

Society of Illustrators 63: Prison Labor

"Prison Labor" was done for the National Labor Federation, which each year publishes a calendar featuring a dozen illustrators' interpretations of 12 themes. It's a pro bono labor of love to which I've contributed artwork for many years. My piece this year focused on the commodification of prison labor.

Creative Quarterly: A Widow Reflects

An illustration about grieving the death of a partner. This was based on an unchosen sketch for a series of illustrations about grief that I recently completed for O—The Oprah Magazine.

From the archives: To Fly or Not To Fly

I've read several articles recently about the safety of air travel during the coronavirus pandemic. Issues range from the measures airlines are taking to ensure passenger safety, to unruly anti-maskers, to airlines allowing coughing, obviously ill passengers to board without question. It got me to thinking about this piece about air travel, done a couple of years ago for The Los Angeles Times.
