I am honored to be in this years Communication Arts Illustration Annual, it just came in the mail today! As a kid I used to lay on my bed flipping through the pages of these annuals, analyzing all the images and daydreaming about the artists. It's really surreal to have my work published here after all those years. This one is especially special because my good friend Owen Freeman is on the cover!

Today I have an illustration in the NY Times Op-Ed about liquor wholesalers controlling consumer choice. The multi-talented Josh Cochran was guest art director on this one. Thanks Josh!

Yesterday I had three spots in the NY Times Book Review for a collection of short stories. The stories I illustrated were about the creator of Godzilla, a flood, and an off the grid survivalist. Thanks again to awesome Nicholas Blechman.
