New & Notable

 I posted earlier about the image created for the Land Gallery in Portland. It was a group show called Work & Play, and it was a commentary on the life of an illustrator. Sometimes the balance tips, towards work most often, but I found the right balance this summer. The jurors at the Society of Illustrators liked the balance too - I am honoured to be included in the 57th Illustration Annual and show. I've been inspired by all of the great pieces posted online this week, the medals awarded went to the best talent in the business. My piece will be in the January show (Uncommissioned and Institutional). Third year running!

Work & Play - Digital collage

This week I also resumed my regular gig for the New York Times Science section. I do a monthy contribution to the Raw Data column, written by George Johnson. This month he wrote about a huge monolithic radio tower erected by the Soviet Union in the 80's, on the doorstep of Chernobyl. The echoes of the Cold War still reverberate in many ways and the nuclear threat has never really disappeared. Great read!

 

I took a few different approaches to this piece, but settled on a graphic approach. The red background speaks to Soviet design, but also reinforces the message of danger and threat.

There's always a little room for experimentation too. I'd like to find more time to develop ideas and collect images for new collage work, but I have two book projects on the go right now. Here's the latest creation from the collage labratory:

Society of Illustrators: Annual Show

Illustrators 56 opens Friday at the Society of Illustrators in New York City.

The show is on display January 7 through February 1. I am so pleased and proud to be a part of this show, this is the second consecutive year that I have been included. I wish I could be there to see all of the work, it is a jaw-dropping collection of the best in illustration. Congrats to the Medal winners Dave Plunkert, Melinda Beck and Sarah Jacoby.
The exhibition covers Institutional, Advertising, Uncommissioned, and Moving Image Categories.
This year marks my 25th anniversary in the biz. Looks to be a great way to start the year. If you are in NYC this month, check out the show: 128 East 63rd Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues).

In the Show

I created this for SubTerrain magazine, artwork for a short story by Marni VanDyk titled 'The Red Mouths' . This piece will be hanging in the editorial show at the Society of Illustrators, NYC, which opens tomorrow night (Feb 1) and will be published in the SOI Annual #55. 

Excited to be a part of the show!
