Writing London

Front cover

A map I designed for Herb Lester Associates has just been printed, Writing London is a guide to “a city full of stories and the people who make them.” You’re always in good hands with the guides from Herb Lester, the locations are described with wit and style (here by Sam West) and the maps are always beautifully designed. To try and keep up my end of the deal, I used the work of one of my favorites, E. McKnight Kauffer as inspiration.

LA Times Music Venue Roundup
posted:

Here's a look at 30 Southern California music venues I just finished for the LA Times great AD, Paul Gonzales. I drew these all in a Moleskine sketchbook sitting on my ass in my studio using Google Maps Street View in about three days, or the same amount of time I would have spent sitting on the freeways to get to each spot.
You can read Randall Roberts reviews of each spot here:

New York Times Science

I’ve been doing a weekly piece for The New York Times Science Section to accompany Jane E. Brody’s Personal Health column. It’s been a pleasure working with Art Director Catherine Gilmore-Barnes on these and it’s been nice to work on series of images that are building a consistent visual style for the column. Also, it’s nice to hear from my mom each week that she saw my drawing in the paper.

USPS Gifts of Friendship Forever Stamps
posted:

The United States Postal Service and Japan Post are jointly issuing Gifts of Friendship stamps tomorrow, April 10. These stamps celebrate the centennial of the gift of flowering dogwood trees from the United States to Japan in 1915. The stamps are issued in a pane of 12 Forever stamps, the left side includes two stamps I designed paired with the Japan Post stamps designed by Junko Kaifuchi.
It was an honor to be asked to work on these stamps as a follow-up to the Cherry Blossom Centennial stamps I designed in 2012. Over 150 million of the 2012 stamps were sold, and I hope this joint issue does well both here and abroad.
Philatelists and dendrologists may order stamps, press sheets and First Day Covers here:
