new work

I've been back in school again since September, and it's been exciting to indulge in and have access to new equipment and processes! Here are some of the pieces and experiments I've made in the past couple months.

Hand-bound book, containing 100 straying drawings on translucent paper:



Portraits drawn with string, sandwiched between handmade abaca and cotton paper. I hadn't expected to like papermaking as much as I am:



Looping book, containing a never-ending narrative. I plan to make
many more of these. I also became obsessed
with the kwikprint foil stamper, as you can see here:




Little book utilizing overlapping transparencies:




Letterpress experiments:



Stills from a couple new animation projects I'm excited about making,
using the Vandercook press:

new yorker







I had the very fun task of making these illustrations for this week's New Yorker, the Food Issue! The above illustrations accompany anecdotal food stories by Dana Spiotta, Mohammed Naseehu Ali, Paul Theroux, Louise Erdrich, and Judith Thurman, respectively. Getting to draw a woodchuck, drunk on fermented mulberries for the New Yorker was an all-time illustration career high!
I also drew 25 small spot illustrations of food for the interactive table of contents in the New Yorker iPad Special for this issue. If you touch the image of the food, it pulls up the pieces about that ingredient in the magazine. I loved working on these!
