I was honored to be commissioned to create the poster for 2012 Baltimore annual Book Festival. The annual event takes place in Mount Vernon Square which features a large column celebrating George Washington and other landmarks that are highlighted in the artwork above.1 comment
Last week I attended my 35th college reunion from Harvard. It was a great affair. It was also the 375th anniversary of Harvard University. I was honored to have one of my cartoons grace the cover of commencement issue of the Harvard Gazette while I was there. The art features the iconic statue of John Harvard joining the Alumni parade (see below). If you look carefully you will see me looking on from the crowd.
Recently The Baltimore Sun celebrated its 175th anniversary. The newspaper asked me to create a cartoon reflecting on that achievement. I choose to create something that celebrated the proud tradition of editorial cartooning at The Sun over the decades. I hope the tradition continues for another 100 years.
I drew the cover for this week’s edition of The Economist. I worked closely with the cover designer in London on this one. We decided to pursue a more “graphic” version than the normally painterly style from the past. You can see the original concept drawing I submitted below. I like the simplicity an starkness of this one. I hope you do, too.
Election season is in full swing which means lots of material for political cartoonist. The cartoon above is from this week’s edition of The Economist.
I drew this one from a hotel in Abuja, Nigeria where I was participating in a conference sponsored by The Economist. As you can probably guess I had a great fun drawing this one.
Among the fearsome flock of Wannabees is Republican businessman Herman Cain. People outside of the US have been watching the American political circus with some interest and despair. An example, the French magazine Courrier International commissioned me to create a cartoon of Herman Cain for this week’s edition (see below).
I was asked to create the cover for The Economist this week. It was a fun topic to illustrate (taxing the rich). I also had fun creating an autumnal scene… makes me want to paint more landscapes! Also this week… I drew the cartoon (below) on the current crisis in Israeli/Palestinian relations. The next day I flew to Taipei, Taiwan to address the World Congress of the International Press Institute. More on that event to come!
I am currently at the printers witnessing the printing of the new Economist wall calendar. This is very exciting. The artwork has been 6 months in the making and I believe this year’s product is the best one yet.
I hope to have copies available to purchase/order by the beginning of October.
In the week’s ahead I will be revealing sneak peeks of some of the calendar spreads here on the Sketchblog.
Please let me know your thoughts.No comments
Sorry to be so lacklustre at posting this summer… been bogged down with the new 2012 Economist wall calendar ( which looks awesome!).
