This was a 2 part illo for a virtual community that started as a kind of utopian community with nice 3d avatars and quickly devolved into sex and drugs. I registered right away. They went with a photo (of what?)

For an article about a gay traveler (Canadian writer RM Vaughan) observing heterosexual men on a trip to Cairo and finding himself bemused by their unusually demonstrative behavior. V straightforward job, smoothly directed!

Revenge of the Birdlady
posted by Joseph Fiedler
client: Arizona Highways Magazine
art director: Barbara Denney

I've been doing a small picture for the AZH column Along the Way for awhile. I almost always end up with a keeper. For me, it's a special treat working for AZH because I love the whole idea of the Great American Desert.  Somehow I feel as though, through my small effort,  I'm helping to make people aware of it's awesome splendor.This was for a piece called Revenge of the Birdlady and was about an overzealous birdfeeder who, much to the chagrin of the neighbors, captured the market in the author's neighborhood in the desert.

Less is More

art director: Dan Clark

Dan Clark was kind enough to ask me for another spot last week. I can usually nail these down in a sketch or two even with the tight turnaround but this one was a bit touchy. The story was about people who work really hard on their investing and tend to fail while people who don't seem to care about it and are lazy seem to prosper. I kept showing a split screen type of thing showing one way versus the other with each sketch getting worse and worse. Dan came to the rescue and it was decided that just showing the relaxed character got the point across in the most direct and entertaining manner. Thanks Dan, why didn't I think of that?
