The King of Miami Night Life

grutmanblog

In this recent cover for the Miami New Times, I was asked to illustrate the “king” of Miami night life, night club magnate David Grutman. Along with the king on his disco chess board are Hulk Hogan, Kim Kardashian , and Nick Jonas chess pieces–all regulars that you can find hanging out in one of his clubs on any given night–that is, if you’re so cool and fortunate to get into one of his clubs. Sadly I am not part of that crowd, sigh.

His most popular club is called LIV, hence the pun in the cover headline. Oh, and a trivia tidbit for all you disco era folks–LIV is “54” in roman numerals. Anyways, big thanks to some fine art directing by Kristin Bjornsen.

Make The World Great Again

Six, count ’em, six Donald Trump spots for a satirical article in The Progressive’s September issue. The spoof is all about how Trump would make everyone great again from Britain and France to Hezbollah, etc. Hilarious “Trumpian” dialogue from writer Matt Biers-Ariel, and a huge thanks to art director Kerstin Diehn for using me again:-) In a departure from my typical rendered painted style, I went with a pen & ink comic book type of look.brittrump_finalanapoleontrump_finalgreektrump_finalajewishtrump_finalahamastrump_finalayankeetrump_final
