Spots, I Love Charts book and off to ICON 7
Here are a few recent editorial assignments…
This was for the back page of the NYTimes Book Review. It was an essay about Erich Segal’s novel “The Class” and other books on Harvard culture. At the top of the assignment I was told it would be best to not have books in the art but this just worked, so I sent it, and they picked it:
Here is the runner-up:
This quarter-page for AARP was for a Q&A about a son who wants his father to stop driving. The dad feels he is cured after his cataract surgery but his driving tells a different story:
Here are two ideas from the scrap heap worth sharing:
This little spot was for a column in the New York Observer about a guy who discovers what he loves about nature – that it doesn’t give a crap about mankind. It was totally irreverent and a lot of fun to work on:
Here are two that got away:
This was a small spot for Golf Digest about “thumping” the ball in a sand bunker:
And here are a few recent spots for On the Road in the NYTimes – A young woman talks about aspiring to be a flight attendant in spite of all the drawbacks; passengers are still bringing concealed weapons onto airplanes; United Airlines is testing a new policy of checking bags (and charging passengers) for oversized bags in the overhead bins:
I just added some new posts to the DrawingScience blog which you can check out here. This spot for Science Times this week about how men’s offices are crawling with bacteria (just a tip in case you don’t read the article, I wouldn’t touch the chair or the phone):
And finally before I head off to ICON next week, I wanted to share that one (or more) of my submissions to I Love Charts has been selected for the book. It’s a fun blog with a lot of great contributors and I recommend checking it out on Tumblr, and buying the book.
I didn’t receive my copy yet but here are a couple of my favorites that I hope made it in:
Thanks to Jason, Cody, Joe, Peter, Scott, Doug, Joanna, Dian, and Nicholas!
