I have a piece in today's NYT letters section. It's about the FDA pulling a popular breast cancer drug. The pill capsules are scanned and altered plier handles which worked out quite nicely. I also broke open an actual cold pill capsule on the scanner bed to add some texture. Thanks once again to Aviva for the assignment.

Happy Holiday! Here's my most recent book cover done for Knopf. The book is about the trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. The direction was to include photos from the trial and the main players. During the trial Eichmann sat encased in a bulletproof glass box and we decided to use that idea and that geometry to conceptually link the characters. I love how it came out and working with the fantastic Barbara DeWilde was a pleasure.

It's time again for another Post-It show at Giant Robot! I painted a total of 23 post-its, and here are a few of my favorites.





Thanks again to Mark Todd and Esther Watson who continue to include me in this ever expanding show. I can't wait to see what Matt Greoning, Nicholas Blechman, Chris Buzelli, Lou Beach, Ryan Heshka, and all my friends have contributed. At only $20 each I might have to take home a few pieces.
