No new drawings this week, since I don’t have access to a scanner. I’ve mostly been doing research for a new book project. I had an idea while looking through the promotions paper companies make. I really want to make a book that has different paper stocks, papers sizes, die-cuts etc. The book will be … Read More

I usually finish a figure in 10 minutes tops, so I’ve had a hard time keeping myself busy with the remaining … Read More

I’m trying to avoid making them look like four sticks. Drawing the exhibit presented a certain challenge since the halls were very dark. And also … Read More
Today I finished printing EVERYTHING for the snorkeling book. That includes the inside pages, the title page, end page, endpaper and cover. I even comped up two books. When you make books manually, there’s a lots of different ways you can mess up. I’ll have to be careful when assembling all twenty-some books that I … Read More
