New York Times Business

I recently had the opportunity to work on a cover illustration for the New York Times Business Section. Can't thank Art Director Minh Uong and Illustrator Jamey Christoph enough for the assignment! I had a great time with it.

The article is about Wallstreet investors looking to the Chinese market for new opportunity during the real estate market crash of the mid 2000's. What they found was an exciting new property developer named Kaisa that as it turns out was too good to be true.

Read it here.

Included is the final painting as well as the sketch we went with.

Ringling College of Art and Design!

Recently returned from a visit to Ringling College of Art and Design. We opened a show of my illustration work at the Madeby Gallery on campus there and I also got to give a talk about my journey into kid's literature to the students and faculty. Huge thank you to the Madeby Gallery and RCAD's office of career services for everything. It was wonderful to be back on campus and to see everyone! What an inspiring community!

Tie It Up

It's Father's Day and I'm about to enter into my sixth year of dad-dom. I had to take special note this year, because I received my very first Father's Day tie. My two year old son made this puppy for me. He was incredibly proud of it, so I am too. It also should be mentioned that my sweet daughter completed a Super-Daddy questionnaire in which she states that if I were a super hero I would in fact be Batman and my favorite food is hotdogs... Love my kids.
