This is the back of the newsletter going out with JR Beer this week - and yes, it's a game board. The game is played with bottlecaps to have a little "stay at home night". I've got to admit, there were some challenges with this feller: a pretty tight deadline, a crazy scale to work on, and many, many things to include. All in all, it was worth 2 all nighters and a slight carpal tunnel flare up! But what better cause than beer?:)

A cover for Maureen at LasVegas CityLife. The finish design is a bit different, but you can get an ideer of the style. This was a gaggle of giggles to do. Andrew DeGraff - Pro-Doodler - Living the Dream. Actually, to ammend that, I found it kind of hard to try to make this look authentic, i.e. have it drawn poorly, but well . . . Hard to describe, but I think you get it. It was sort of like method acting - I put on some Journey, Rush, Queen, and the Cars and watched NewsRadio on Hulu - and I was back procrastinating on my homework all over again. It was great to rework the CITYLIFE text a bit, too. And make it bleed a little.

While last year I had to clean the rest of my family's catch to make the stained T-Shirts for the Dirty Laundry show in Honolulu, this year my lucky Mets shirt and, well I'll just say it, D-Bag sunglasses came through with a slew of good size bass, and nice selection of trout. I do love fishing in Northern Vermont - catch some crayfish, grab a cup of coffee, a book or crossword, and lounge in a boat for three hours. I love sports.

Jordin Isip, illustrator extraordinaire and one of the curators (along with Rodger Stevens) of the Dime Bag 3 Show at Giant Robot NY was nice enough to send around post from the NY Magazine culture blog, which included a nice write up of the show and "30 slides of the best works", of which I was very flattered to be included. My guess is the writer, Emma Pearse, is either also a Mets fan, or also a fan of tiny stadium billboards that say "Keyspan". I do miss my stadium. The show closes on August 12th, so if you haven't seen it, your window is closing!!
I was going through my archives and found this image I did for my friend Laurin (aka the dj - Sleazy McQueen) Prince vs Michael Jackson Party a few years ago. Thought I'd throw it up as a little memorial. I have to admit, the man was amazing. I'm still a bigger Prince fan, but the world was better with the both of them in it.
