Doctors Without Borders


Doctor's Without Borders is holding a benefit auction in Ferrara Italy tomorrow.
I was invited to create a piece to be auctioned off.
The theme had to somehow include one of their missions and yet feel hopeful.
Curated by Emiliano Ponzi

"Phoenix" is the title, printed on canvas.

The New Republic

 Did this piece for the Joe Heroun and Christine Car at the New Republic for an article on the fate of American Industry and how to revitalize it.

So in the roughs I explored both the problem and the solution.

Fantasy Fiction Writing

I actually don't read much fiction, let alone fantasy fiction. But I do enjoy a visually rich subject like that. So I was excited to get a call from Kim Vu at the Washington Post.

The trick was how to show fantasy without being to specific tied to vampires, harry potter etc etc etc.
So we went with the eye.

Here's the piece without the type.

Yoga Journal

I've done a few images for Yoga Journal over the years, but about a year ago I really started getting into yoga more, so it was a real treat to get a call from Ian Goldberg there.

This piece was for a review of the book "Four Desires". The main point of the review seemed to be listening to your soul in order to figure out your higher purpose. But just in case I mixed in some roughs that could go with the "Four Desires" title. Luckily Ian saw the potential in the star to pearls sketch.

I probably did more than enough roughs, but when I get a spiritual story like this or something I'm really interested in, I can't stop concepting.

Here's the piece in print. Thanks Cathryn for sending it. I love when the AD's email me a quick screen shot or pdf of their design, because it means I'm going to blog about it!
