George Orwell's Animal Farm
Toward the end of last year I had a great opportunity to work on one of my favorite books, George Orwell’s Animal Farm, for Easton Press. I have to admit, I hadn’t read it… I know, such a classic… When I talked to Lee about it, she said she read it when she was a kid,...

NewsWeek Cover - ZIKA BITES
Upcoming cover for Newsweek, for Priest and Grace.... Did some alternate ideas but this one was pretty much right from the art director, Grace Lee... Just the perfect creepiness. I wanted it to make you sort of start feeling itchy when you look at it, but still look fresh and clean. I...
Opportunity in Small Things... PlanAdviser
It had been a while since I had a chance to work with SooJin on one of these projects. So happy to get another chance. This one was conceptually challenging and my thumbnails were sort of all over the place. She had requested the airbrush style but said she was open to anything... The breif she...
