New York Observer Cover
The weekend before New Years Eve I was offered this fun cover assignment from Ed Johnson at New York Observer. As an illustrator who loves drawing likenesses I had a great time with this one. It was to be a montage of various notable people who were going to make news in 2013. I couldn't think of a better way to spend New Years Eve than working on a fun illustration, seriously. As always it was great working with Ed and the paper.

Romney Loses by a Nose
I know, corny, but I can't deny my lame sense of humor. Anyway, the word "lie" was thrown around so much during the campaign, I couldn't resist drawing this.

Washington Post Express - 20 Years of the Improv
This is a recent illustration for Art Director Adam Griffiths at the Washington Post Express. The idea was to illustrate a number of notable comedians who started out performing at the DC Improv. I hope I did them all justice.

This is a recent illustration for The Spectator in London. The article is about the depressing nature of many English documentaries and how some film makers are looking to make more positive films. Thanks to Liz Anderson for the assignment and choosing my favorite sketch to bring to final.

Baseball Cards for AEG Live Concerts
Once again, this summer I'm illustrating and designing baseball cards for select AEG Live concerts at the Mann Center in Philadelphia. Each card will portray the musician or band as baseball players and pay tribute to specific baseball cards throughout the years. These are the first three but there are many more to come. Also if you go to the concerts you will be handed one at the gate!

The story is about french basketball player Evan Fournier and the declining number of Europeans in the NBA today. Below are the rough sketches submitted before deciding on the final concept.
