This is always a busy time of year, but this year Gina and I have been extra busy tying up our portfolios for Surtex. I'll post more on that later, but for now I thought I'd show the process on one of the patterns we made for the occasion. Here is Juniper being fooled by my powers of illusion.
And here is is once I added some bows and made it a seamless repeat.
With all the rush, I had to miss out on a few things. Last week was the opening for the On Language show at the New York Times and I wasn't able to make the event. I'm a fan of this column and was very happy to paint an illustration for them a few years ago. Thank you to Nicholas Blechman for organizing the show, and I'm sorry I couldn't see it all together.
This was the lettering i did for Leo Jung back in '07.
Look at this list of contributors. A great bunch. I wonder if a more public space would be interested in picking the show up?
