New Yorker illustrations

May 16, 2014

So a while back I partnered up with a friend of mine, Mark Johnson, who is a huge New Yorker fan. He came up with these three ideas, the deserted island, and the train conversation, and the idea for the dog piece. I completely misunderstood his direction for the dog piece, and did what you see here, which is completely different then he wanted, but it still turned out funny. We were going to submit these, but then found out just how absurd the process to get shown for the New Yorker is, so here they are for the blog!

December Newsletter cartoon.

December 2, 2010

This was the hardest one so far. I found it pretty difficult to have a loose “New Yorker” type of look while drawing numerous pieces of fitness machines.


A few new projects…

November 2, 2010

Here are some things I have been working on that I have yet to show.

Above is something I did over a year ago. There was a brochure that Heidi had retouched, and it had little pictures, maybe 10 or so. The assignment called for this particular thumbnail to be blown up to a printable size, but the original scan was so small that it looked horrible. I was given the task to paint over it to make it look good enough to print. It was quite the job, perhaps the most labor intensive project to date.

Above is the next cartoon. They wanted me to draw this to resolve a problem around the club where people had been leaving their things behind in the locker room.

Two more Uclub Cartoons…


The next Uclub Cartoon…

August 3, 2010

I haven’t posted any new art since the last University Club cartoon, that should change soon. Its been very busy lately, with vacations and trips and all, not to mention I had been saving this particular cartoon for the summer newsletter that skips a month. There are only 10 a year. I saved this one for the off month because I knew it would be very difficult, and it was. The rendering itself was pretty smooth, the hardest part was the concept stage, where I spent forever going through several ideas until I found one I liked. The verbiage hasn’t been sent to me, so all you have here is the art! (if your curious, this months topic was aimed at getting people to buy a parking sticker for the back lot to avoid tickets and towing.)


The latest Uclub Cartoon.

June 16, 2010


So this is the next cartoon for the University Club of Boston’s monthly newsletter. The Uclub is trying to resolve member issues and create awareness through the use of a New Yorker style cartoon, instead of putting up a text only rule. I think its a nice unique and fun idea.
