The New Deal Pieces!

Had another opportunity over MLK weekend to work with the great Larry Gendron from The Deal.  The magazine uses lots of illustration and great illustrators, so it was really nice to get a cover and interior piece.  The basic angle on the piece was about risk management, and companies changing their financial stances to be more protected.   I got going on this sort of circus theme with the first two sketches and was really happy that Larry wanted to use both.  It made for a long weekend, but a good one.  I even squeezed in a little cross country skiing with the fam, and a gigantic leg of lamb dinner courtesy of my Aunt Grace and Uncle John.

The Times ran a little story about the amazing losing capacity of New York teams, including my beloved Metroploitans along with a nice little photo gallery.  As the snow falls, and the Mets gear up for a "rebuilding" year, I'm taking another long deep breath.  I'm wondering if it's possible to hibernate through summer . . .

Let's go Mets.

Great Job!

Gallery1988 is opening the "Is This Thing On?" show tonight at their Melrose gallery at 7 tonight, and here's my submission: Tim and Eric in a piece called "The Nephews Muscles".  I'd seen a bit of their stuff before, but it was great to watch all the "Tim and Eric: Awesome Show, Great Job" episodes.  Holy hell - funny, crazy - sort of insane anti-funny really.  Check it out if your out in the left coast sunshine!
