I’m excited to have an illustration on the new Citgo Rewards credit card! It allows you to get 5 cents off of every gallon of gas you buy. I don’t own a car, therefore I don’t buy gas—but if I did buy gas, you better believe that I’d use the Citgo Rewards credit card.
Big thanks to Casey Christian for letting me have so much fun with this!

I have an Op-Ed illustration in today’s New York Times. The fact that “freedom” and “gay marriage” are still incomparable is enough to make one sick—but now we’re throwin’ fried chicken in the mix? I need an In-N-Out burger immediately. Big thanks to Matt!
“True individual freedom includes allowing consenting adults to marry the partners they choose, regardless of gender. To those for whom same-sex marriage is personally objectionable, their free choice is simple: Don’t enter into one. But don’t impede the freedom of others to do so. As long as Chick-fil-A operates within the boundaries of the law, municipalities and institutions should leave the decision about whether to eat at Chick-fil-A to individual consumers.”

I’m honored that Advertising Age ran my burning euro on their cover last week. I originally made the piece for the cover of Newsweek last month—but it was killed, and it instead became a full-page illustration inside. Thanks to Jesper Goransson at Ad Age!
In response to the impending euro crisis, I was recently asked to create sketches for the cover of Newsweek. Sadly, all of my sketches were killed, however, my burning euro turned into an interior illustration in this week’s issue. Needless to say, the euro is hot right now!
Thanks to the lovely Lindsay Ballant, and Dirk Barnett, for letting me burn this mother down!

I have an illustration in today’s New York Times Book Review. With so many global crises, ranging from environmental to economic, it seems self-evident that things are getting worse. However, a certain Silicon Valley entrepreneur is optimistic about the direction of the world. Big thanks to Nicholas!

I have a full-page illustration in this month’s Fast Company. The issue is entitled “The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies” and my illo was in response to their 41st company, Kickstarter. The article focuses on how low-budget “dream” movies are not only getting made because of Kickstarter, but they’re being well-received, and about a dozen of them have actually qualified for the Sundance Film Festival competition.
I was asked to do this in the middle of my move from SF to NYC in early January, so unfortunately all my office stuff was packed away. Where would you be without friends who let you use their studio when you’re homeless? Huge thanks to Florian Bachleda and Ted Keller for so much fun!

I have three illustrations in the January/February issue of Foreign Policy. They’re in response to a series of articles on ways to save the economy, touching on topics such as currency wars, infrastructure, and the world’s debt. Thanks to Dennis for letting me have tons of fun on this!
Art Director: Dennis Brack
#1 “Write Off The World’s Debt”
#6 “Spend $1 Trillion On The Future”
#9 “Tame The World’s Crazy Currency System”
I have some hand lettering on the cover of this week’s New York magazine. The cover story is on workplace confessions—and how 20 individual “informants,” such as a transsexual escort, a police officer, and a Per Se waiter, reveal the behind the scenes dirty-dirty on their professions.
Doing this cover feels symbolic, considering I moved back to NYC just 4 days ago. I was charged to do a lot more type, but they ended up piecing it together and mixing and matching. Big thanks to Randy!

I have a series of illustrations in today’s Bloomberg View. They’re in response to four articles written by economists on the current monetary forecast for Germany, France, Finland, and Ireland. The Euro pact is in trouble, and it’s not looking promising.
Considering I had to do four illustrations in the amount time that’s allocated for one, I knew I had to come up with an idea that had a strong through-line. And I’m always pleased when I can incorporate two of my favorite loves: doodling and making corny three-dimensional vector objects. Big thanks to Gary!

I also have an illustration in Wired magazine this month. A micromotor, roughly a tenth the diameter of a red blood cell, spins a polymer web in order to repair tissue.
