Will & Grace Revival

Will, Grace, Karen and Jack are back in this recent (well, actually it was a couple months ago–I’ve lagged behind on my blog posts, ugh!) illo for Entertainment Weekly’s Must List–to coincide with the television revival of Will & Grace. Thank you Art Directors Faith Stafford and Ruby Parra.

On the Road in Trump’s America

Here’s a cover illustration I did for The Progressive–the current Oct/Nov. issue. I was asked to illustrate the cover story “Across the Great Divide: On the Road in Trump’s America”.  In it, a Progressive reporter goes on a cross country road trip to interview Trump supporters in order to gain a better understanding of  “the other side” and bridge the gap that divides our nation.

Art Director Kerstin Diehn and I had been brainstorming various road trip themed concepts for the cover. Road trips always remind me of roadside diners so I presented this diner concept which turned into the finished cover above. Oh, and the retro vibe of the diner is absolutely  intentional.

Gaga: Five Foot Two

Here’s Lady Gaga for a recent ‘Must List’ illustration in Entertainment Weekly. It was for the debut of her Netflix documentary ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’. I watched the doc and gained a new appreciation for this lady–it was quite inspirational and effectively revealed the “human side” so rarely seen of the pop icon. Thank you AD Dragos Lemnei!

The Real Cat Man

And here’s my recent cover illustration for the Miami New Times. It features Key West’s most famous street entertainer, Dominique (aka the Cat Man) Lefort and his Flying House Cats. A wacky and eccentric French clown, Lefort has dazzled crowds for over three decades with his team of seemingly ordinary house cats who perform amazing stunts like jumping through flaming hoops and walking across narrow balance beams. This is pretty remarkable when you consider we have a cat and we can’t even get her to stay off the kitchen table! It was a treat to work with AD Kristin Bjornsen again on this cover.

Logan Lucky

Here’s my latest Must List illustration for Entertainment Weekly–a group caricature of the just released movie Logan Lucky. This heist comedy–sort of a Southern fried Ocean’s Eleven–stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, and Katie Holmes. A big thank you to art director Jennie Chang–this was a fun one to work on!

Stars and their TV Adaptations

My latest group caricature for Entertainment Weekly appears in the Books section. The article “Get Me Another Handmaid’s Tale!” is about the Hollywood trend of turning famous books into TV adaptations. Featured (from left to right) are Amy Adams, Barry Jenkins, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Steve Coogan reading the books they will be playing (or directing in Barry’s case) on screen. Big thanks to Carly Klaire of EW for giving me the call on this one!

The Raft of the Minnow-with sincere apologies to Theodore Gericault

With my sincerest apologies to Theodore Gericault. I had always been fascinated by his masterpiece ‘The Raft of the Medusa’ ever since I laid eyes on it in my art history class so long ago. In it, Gericault depicts the real life account of a famous shipwreck of the French naval frigate “Medusa” in 1816. After the ship ran aground off the shore of West Africa, at least 147 passengers went adrift on a makeshift raft. By the time they were rescued 13 days later, only 15 survivors remained–they had resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Naturally, I couldn’t help but think of another famous shipwreck from my youth–and so the most beloved and ubiquitous TV series from the 60’s, ‘Gilligan’s Island’, became the inspiration for this parody–is there something wrong with me? As usual, check out some close up details…
