Do Not Cross!

Or more to the point, good luck crossing. Work on the East side of Second Avenue went much smoother and was completed more quickly than that on the West side of the avenue the many months before. It may be in part to increased efficiency from all tha ...

Chocolate highlights

highlights from the Buck’s County Chocolate Show in New Hope, Pennsylvania … and oh what a show it was! The word Chocolate alone draws in a crowd. So I wasn’t surprised how the line wrapped around the building as early as 10am. But what did su ...

This past weekend I had this illustration published in the Chicago Tribune. I had the opportunity to work with one of my favorite ADs Nicole Dudka. The article is loaded with visuals and I’m really happy with how it worked out. ...

Illustrating the Girls with the Band

Here’s an editorial piece I did recently that appeared in the Sunday Arts section of the Hartford Courant, about band groupies. Apparently they are organizing online – one group mentioned in the article even has a MySpace page! What’ll they thi ...

A Different View on Second Avenue
