This is an illustration i did for the back page of the McSweeny's newspaper issue. It's kind of a kids page made up of some fine people who I'm humbled to be included with. This page was put together by Mac Barnett, who is great.
i was always kind of interested in 'spot the differences' games, because you go into them with such gusto, but they're so unsatisfying to finish. once you've spotted all the differences, thats it. at least it gave me an excuse to do a symmetrical composition instead of doing it for no reason like i usually do.
Also, I was lucky enough to snag a spot in the latest incarnation of Taschen's 'Illustration Now', curated by Julius Wiedemann. Here is proof of this claim:
I also have a very nice section in a magazine called DPI which i understand is all the rage in Taiwan. Thanks to Miss Effie Lin for being so great at putting it together. here is more visual proof:
to close, a heads up of a very interesting show coming up in London in January called 'If You Could Collaborate'. David O'Reilly and me (but mostly David) made something for it. Here's a link to the details, a link to David's site which you should look at every day, and a cryptic picture from the project. i'll post more show details and the project itself when the time is right.
