Grantland/McSweeney's - Killed Piece

A while back I was contacted to do another illustration for Grantland/McSweeney's. This time it was for a piece about the AFC/NFC championship games. It consisted of realtime emailing during the games between various writers for the site. There were a lot of components to illustrate but in the sketches I zeroed in a few. After taking one of the sketches to final they decided they wanted just Steven Tyler so I drew a bigger Stevie. After all this, unfortunately the piece was killed. These things happen sometimes and I at least now I have a grotesque Steven Tyler illustration to show you fine folks :)

Hollywood Reporter - Michael Bloomberg

This is as fun as it gets! Michael Bloomberg listed his top 10 reasons why films should shoot in NYC and I was lucky enough to get asked to illustrate the piece for The Hollywood Reporter. Below are my sketches too. I'm extremely happy that the Taxi Driver sketch was selected. Thanks Shanti for such an amazingly fun assignment!
