State Race

This image ran yesterday in The New York Times for an article about competition between the states being good for the economy. Utah, with a very low corporate tax, is leading the pack.

Hi everybody. I have a little side project of very low-res portraits called iotacons. This week, some Conan O'Brien iotacons I did are in Fortune Magazine! Above is the penultimate layout for the print version, and there is also an iPad version that had one of those poses at the top of each page of the article, and a clickable dancing Conan movie on the last page! Here is the movie.

Underground New York


Hi everybody. Today's New York Times has an Op-Art edufotainstration I did about archeology in New York City. It was art directed by Alicia Desantis, and I think she did an amazing job of laying out a great looking page with a whole lot of text and very little time to do it! She was a breeze to collaborate with, and I'm very happy with the results. To the left is what this thing looks like in the paper today.

I was really looking forward to posting this here, and sharing it with my friends on facebook, and I intended to do that with a link to the New York Times web site.

Continued below....

Underground New York: Part 2

Continued from above.


But this is what it looks like on the web!

It's fine, really. It's a good solution for maintaining legibility. The same info pops up when you click on the i boxes. But the illustration looks a bit unfinished without all that text. And Alicia and I worked really hard to make all that text work with the illustration! Oh well. Designing for print and designing for the web are just two different things. And they're going to get differenter and differenter. So long!

Snail Parade


A Snail Parade has just begun!
Let's start the show with number one!

Crawling out of Grampa's shoe
is Snail Parade snail number two!

Snail Parade snail number three
Is cheered on by his family!

And that's the end! No wait, there's more!
Here comes a fourth snail: Number Four!

Injured, yes, but still alive
Is bird-attacked snail number five!

Pausing to enjoy a Twix
Is Snail Parade snail number six!

Passing snails eight through eleven
Speedy snail twelve, I mean seven!

Although we had an hour to wait,
At last here comes snail number eight!

Sliding down the slimy line
Is slimy snaily numby nine!

After that comes number ten!
And so the Snail Parade must end.

Monopoly Seating Chart

Hey everybody. Here is an illustration I did for today's New York Times. It's always interesting to see what changes a publication will request before running an illustration, especially one with writing on it like this one. I would have laid money that they would request that I change the "Spastic Sleeper" space for fear of receiving too many of what Dick Cavett referred to as "For You See" letters, as in "Dear Mr. Cavett, I object to your use last week of the phrase 'basket case.' For you see, I was born without arms or legs...." I guess spastic sleeping isn't quite the epidemic air travel leads me to believe. The Times did request a small change: originally, the space next to the lavatory was labeled "Lavatory Smell." No big deal, as far as I'm concerned! So long!
