Jonathan at Phawker.com asked my to draw Michael Phelps for an up to the minute update on every time Phelps wins a gold medal. I found a Chinese painting of a red carp jumping out of the water and exceeding its goal of just swimming to a gate. I thought this was fitting for Phelps and will add another carp for every medal he wins.

Yesterday was a strange day. I got my weekly assignment for Philadelphia Weekly and it was to draw Isaac Hayes. It was for the Stax Records Anniversary celebration that Hayes was supposed to host. (The logo for Stax Records is snapping fingers just in case you didn't know why I drew him in this pose) Anyway, I come home yesterday ready to color in the drawing I did in the morning to find that Hayes had passed away sometime during the day yesterday. I wasn't sure if they were still going to use the illo but it turned into a memorial column for Hayes so the illustration still worked.

Here is a poster I just finished for KEXP Radio in Seattle. They are printing posters to advertise new bands on the rise. This version hasn't gone through final approval yet but I think this will be the one we're going with. The plan is to print 40.000 copies to give away at Seattle's annual music fest Bumbershoot.
