I worked with the Knight Foundation to create a graphic accompanying their report on local nonprofit news operations. More information and a larger version here.
After four years of illustrating the Hey You column for the OC Weekly, I’ve decided to move on to make more time for comics journalism and editorial cartoons. It was a very fun gig that I always allowed me a great deal of creative freedom. Onward!
Here are the three other cartoons I did for the ad agency DeVito Verdi for Duane Reade, a chain of drug stores in NYC. They are running them as caption contests in print and online. I’ll be one of the judges. The rat is a reference to an inflatable rat that is used by unions and commonly seen on New York streets.
Hi again Matt
I sent you an email last week and I hadn’t heard back so I wanted to try you again. Flink12, a new social networking site, has put out a call for artists and graphic designers to take part in a Global Icon Art Competition. I thought that you and the readers of Illustration Friday Blog would be interested in this opportunity. We’re offering a minimum of $3,000 commissions to create feature icons for the site.
Hi again Brenda,
Um, pretty sure we covered this.
The time for public shaming has arrived. If you are a designer or illustrator who doesn’t know about the No Spec movement, see here.
Flink12, a new social networking site, has just launched its Global Icon Art Competition. I thought that you and the readers of Illustration Friday Blog would be interested in this unique opportunity. We’re offering $3,000 commissions to create icons for the site. This is a great opportunity for artists and graphic designers to promote their work globally and possibly win a longer-term contract with us. (more…)
This cartoon is for a caption contest I was hired to illustrate by the ad agency DeVito Verdi for Duane Reade, a chain of drug stores in NYC. They are running four of these over the next few weeks in print and online. The art director, Tyler DeAngelo, and I came up with four New York specific themes. In this case, the “B” label is from the grades restaurants have to display in their window. Anything less than an A is considered bad news.
