Summer's here (and it's hot!), 3x3 International Illustration Annual, and some recent work.  

Off to a Hot Start

I recently returned from Nantes, France, where I attended a printmaking workshop. Temperatures there hit 41°C... or 105°F. It seems it's been a hot start to summer '22 all over. This is a piece I did several years ago for the New Yorker magazine's Blown Covers blog on the theme of "Man, it's hot!"

3x3 International Illustration Annual 2022

I just received word that "Creative Problem Solving" was juried into the 2022 3x3 International Illustration Annual. How do you find a way forward when negotiating with a brick wall rather than a consensus-seeking partner? Such situations call for creative solutions. Commissioned for IQ Magazine.

Stranded in Russia

A piece for The Economist on wealthy Russians being unable to escape the heat and travel to their usual vacation spots due to travel restrictions and the ruble being rejected—as a result of the war in Ukraine. As in a previous series I did for The Economist, I used color to suggest the two countries as well as, in this case, heat and shade.

Seeing Through the Propaganda

Another illustration from same series for The Economist. Many Russians are using VPN on their phones to get the real story of what's happening in Ukraine, seeing through the official line being broadcast on state TV.


Draft Dodger

A third piece in The Economist series about Russians' views on the Ukraine war. The topic of this illustration was the many young men in Russia dodging the draft because of their opposition to the war.

Build-to-Rent Housing in the Suburbs

A recent illustration for Pro Builder magazine about trends in Build-to-Rent housing. Because it is enormously profitable, many home builders are now creating communities and building new homes specifically to rent rather than sell to home buyers.
