Quick update! I did a piece for the Village Voice and a spooky flyer this week, and here it is! It was for an article titled "Rate My Professors Has Some Academics Up in Arms". The article basically talks about how some professors think the website is a way for kids to throw "digital spitballs" at their teachers if they don't like them, and also for teachers who are easier graders to get better reviews and more enrollment in their classes, while teachers who grade harder feel pressured to either raise the average grade, or face less students in their classes. You can read the original article here. Also this week, I did a flyer for a Scaaary Story night at the Windup Space here in Baltimore. The night was hosted by local filmmaker Chris LaMartina. More snazzy shit coming your way soon!
I recently did an illustration for Businessweek! Crazy, right? Completely unexpected, right? I'm super psyched that I got to do work for them! I was assigned to do a spot illustration to accompany an article on the book The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry. As it turns out, blood-thirsty CEO types have a lot more in common with blood-thirsty Psychopath types! Who'da thought? Anyway, they printed the test in this weeks issue, and my illustration was printed on the test itself! They were a blast to do this piece for, and the art director was super cool to work with! I also did one of my first comics in a while this past week as well! New York artist Josh Bayer recently asked me and a bunch of super rad artists to contribute to an anthology that he's putting together. The basic idea is that he sends us a pile of panels from various Nancy comic strips, we pick two of them, one to put as the first panel of the comic, and one to put as the last panel of the comic, and then we fill in the story in between! It's an awesome idea, and was a load of fun to do! Here's what I did! I have more work on the way that I'll be posting here soon, so check back later!
Here's a couple of things that I worked on this week! First up is another collaboration between Alex Fine and me for Cannibal Impalement Records' monthly More Gore event at the Sidebar here in Baltimore. This time around they're doing a double feature for the movies Hatchet 1 & 2. Alex Drew the right side of the face and the Gator heads, and I drew the left, the hatchets, and did the text as well. These are being turned into a limited run of 30 screen prints that are going to be sold at the show/online. If you're in the Baltimore area Wednesday! Also this week, I drew a comic for Benn Ray of Atomic Books' Said What? comic strip that's printed each week in Baltimore's B Magazine. Here's what I did! I'm going to be posting some exciting-ass stuff soon! Peel those eyes for more updates!
