Perfect Pour

Here is my latest TimeOut New York Illustration, on time as promised. The article is a non-beer drinker's guide to NYC beer drinking. The concept is pretty straightforward this time: a hip, in-the-know bartender, producing the perfect golden pint for three soon-to-be converts. Being sadly out of the loop when it comes to hip New York bars, I based this one loosely on Baltimore's own Brewer's Art.

Williamsburg Candyland

Here's an illustration I did for TimeOut New York's "This Week in New York" section. I held off on posting this one because I wanted to get a scan of the actual magazine page, with the Candy Land board snaking around section header. Unfortunately, I never saw the final, so I'm a bit late to the party with my own illustration.

I'll have another TimeOut New York illustration to post soon. It'll be current too, I swear!

Clash Tribute

So last week Baltimore was hit by a totally badass thundersnow. The accumulation wasn't much by most standards, but it was absolutely crippling by the usual Maryland standard. I spent my two days off working on this poster, while watching Tears of a Black Tiger and Django on Netflix. The inspiration is pretty straightforward in this case.

There's something about the combination of punk music and the outlaw imagery of spaghetti westerns that I really love. I don't think I've got it entirely out of my system yet, so let's see where this goes. I really tried to loosen up my inking style with this one. I want to be able to capture movement and energy, while maintaining strong, iconic lines. Hopefully this is a good step in the right direction.

If you're in Baltimore, and you are a fan of rocking out, I suggest you make it out to the show as well. Maybe I'll see you there!
