Popular Mechanics

Got to do some fun little spots for Michael Lawton at Popular Mechanics dealing with navigation systems - something I can identify with.  My girlfriend has one - we call it "Carol" as in the Horatio Sanz character on SNL.  She, for it has a female voice, barks out instructions in her tinny voice in the middle of conversations, recalculates in drive thru's, and is a general nuissance, and yet a source of great amusement since it leads to us talking in that monotone authoritarian voice - "I NEED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM IN POINT THREE MILES, TURN RIGHT AT THE COWBOY SIGN, WHERE'S MY POINT THREE MILE DOUGHNUTS, . . . . . . . I'M CAROL!!"

Hey man,

Really loving your work. Goonies series is amazing. Is most of your work traditional? Or do you manipulate it digitally at all in your process.

Keep it up super fun to look at.

It's generally traditional: gouache/watercolor on paper - for the popular mechanics piece, I did it as a two color drawing and broke it down in photoshop, and recolored. At this point, it's rare that I do that: usually only on quick turnarounds, or spot illustrations.

And thanks - you've got some great work yourself! Love the four seasons books.
