another illo for the Imaginary 2oth century book, it's for one of the more fantastic chapters that took place in Greece, lot of crazy Victorian invention references. good suggestion about the train in the background, Norman, thanks!

happy summer!

I've been working with the brilliant Norman Klein, culture critic and media historian, for the past couple of weeks, and it's been a great learning experience. I'm making 12 illustrations for his new book Imaginary 20th century, it's a pretty interesting read and comes with an astonishing archive of photographs and illustrations from the time period put together by Margo Bistis. we are doing something new with the way the book and the archive are presented, I'll follow up on that later. if you are still reading, this is the image for the first chapter, set in1893's Chicago world's fair, hopefully my illustration makes you interested in the book and the archive, you can check them out here.

american illustration 28

last week I was pretty excited to find out that this piece I did was chosen to appear in the American Illustration 28 book. this image was done for my self-promotional postcard. it proved that ideas really can strike at any time, I think I was in the shower when this idea came to me. thanks to the AI28 jury for the encouragement.

I'm following the trend here, just added RSS feature to my blog, so you can subscribe to my blog to get the news and other updates.

it's always a thrill to look at your own work in print! this is an illustration I did a while back for MovieMaker magazine. thanks to the art director Rob Hewitt for giving me total freedom to do what I wanted. and also I was glad to find out that fellow illustrator Jon Han has a piece in the same issue as well! make sure to check out his work here, big fan!
