The Advocate is the Best!

The folks at The Advocate Magazine are the best! In the mail, I just received a few copies of my issue, AND A POSTER OF MY COVER! Can you say, "Best Client Ever!" It's so cool of them to send me the poster. I was already planning on getting the issue framed. Now I have even more.

Made my day, guys. Big thumbs up. Thanks! :)

The Advocate: The Cuomo Evolution

Check out my illustration for the cover for the September issue of The Advocate!

Marriage Equality has been passed in New York State and this issue talks to the man who pushed for it, Governor Andrew Cuomo. I know you want to run out and go grab it now, but it's not on stands, yet. So, you're just going to have to settle for reading/seeing my artwork on the Advocate website.

I'm so honored to have been asked to create the image for this monumental issue and I'm excited it turned out so great. Once it becomes available you should get one right away. Trust me, it's going to be a hot commodity. I think I'm going to frame mine. :)

Pines Nude Drawing

I am really having a great summer. During the week, I've been working my butt off with freelance jobs and every couple weeks I've been running off to the beach for the weekends. What more could I ask for?

This summer there's something new going on in the Fire Island Pines. Carlos Pisco has started up the Pines Nude Drawing. Every other week, Carlos has been pulling together a group of guys to get together and draw. It's not something one typically finds at the beach, but where else could there be a more beautiful setting? I went for the first time the last time I was out and had a blast. It was a great way to start my morning--poolside with my sketchbook, pencils, and free models.

Here's just a few of the drawing I did while I was there. It was a really wonderful experience and I can't wait to get back to do some more!

The Village Voice: Bloomberg's Machine Politics

Go out right now and pick up a copy of this week's Village Voice! Now, go to page 10! There it is! There it is! This is the first image of a series that I'm doing for the Village Voice!

After the doing a piece for the movie, "Hanna," the Village Voice has brought me on to do a weekly illustration, paired with their writer Harry Siegel. The column is very traditional, in the sense, that it will be digging and revealing, reporting on local politics. This week's article looks at Mayor Bloomberg. The mayor has been caught using Bloomberg.com email address for office communication, leaving messages off the record. Read more about it on the Village Voice website.

The Village Voice is printed on a weekly basis and distributed throughout the red boxes every Wednesday morning. Pick it up every week to see my contribution!
