The Aftershocks

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L'Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!


Here are some of the editorial illustrations I’ve done in the last few months with a couple of personal illos mixed in! For this batch, thanks to ADs Len Small, Deanna Donegan, Erich Nagler, Matt Dorfman, Aviva Michaelov, and Martin Salazar. Thanks also to all the wonderful ADs I’ve worked with in the past year!

This is a quick piece I did last week with one of my new favorite Art Directors Erich Nagler for the cover of yesterday’s Sunday Styles section in The New York Times. The article was about young creatives moving out of NY due to the high cost of living, and is an interesting read for anyone in a similar situation (myself included). Working on this was a nice change of pace from what I have been doing recently. I have been really trying to make my colors brighter by using vintage comic book palette’s to really make things pop, and I think that this is my first real successful use of such a palette. Working with NYT is always a treat, but especially when the work comes out much much better than you had originally expected it to.


I might’ve forgotten to post this a little while ago. But seriously, you should read this amazing, in-depth piece by Elmo Keep. If you’ve ever thought about going to Mars and what it will take to colonize it, then this is will be the best thing for you. Right after working on this I listened to The Martian by Andy Weir on audiobook and it discusses a lot of the same problems written in this article. That was pretty cool.

Anyways, I did quite a number of illustrations to go along with this. Many thanks to AD Erich Nagler at Matter who had the common sense to stop me from using baby colors on this project!
