Wren Bjorg Preview 2

Hey Blog, been busy the past few days. I did a Wren Bjorg preview a few months ago, and finally got to doing some more images with Shannon Rankin and this time Sidney Pink as well. Their work was so cool I just tried to get of the way and not ruin it too much, aha. Here are a couple images, to tide help you kick off the long weekend.

Also, in Shannon's case, the backs of her work are just as beautiful as the fronts.

Oil of No-Way

Good evening Blog. This is a piece for today's "Letters to the Editor" page in the Op-Ed section of The New York Times. It has to do with the effort to contain the huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. I usually dig the illustrations in this section because they get right to the point due to the size constraint. Plus, it's a great mental exercise. Below is an alternate idea that Aviva and I both liked but was ultimately passed up for the above image.

Bubblin' for Apples

Happy Monday Blog. First off, I had an great time at Chicken & Beer IV at the Brooklyn Lyceum on Friday. It was a great event, and I'm amazed that they had enough beer to last the whole event (it was all you can eat and all you can drink).

Speaking of alcoholic consumption, this is a custom wine label I recently finished for a Green Apple Riesling. It's 3.25 inches across and 4 inches high. Text goes in the center so I wanted to nest it in between the hanging green apples and the apple blossoms sprouting from the bottom.

So far I've done gin and wine. Everclear can't be far behind.
