emusic: stone arabia

for dana spiotta’s new book, stone arabia, emusic asked five artists to create five fake album covers for five of the fake albums in the book. my cover was for the album, take me home and make me fake it, by the fakes. added bonuses, emusic posted the author’s response to each of the covers, and the la times book blog reviewed the fake covers (sort of).

slate: all the president's pens

president obama has made epic use of the autopen to the point of signing a bill into law with it. this, however, opens up a constitutional problem. the mechanically recreated signature itself is not an issue, but using this machine (or any proxy) without the president being in the room, according to article I of the constitution, is. anyway, go to slate to read the full nitty gritty, i just draw the pens running amok.

semi related: sometimes i have know the authors of slate articles, have emailed with them, or just recognize their names. this article was written by someone i don’t know, terry l. turnipseed. terry, your name is awesome. that is all.

better homes and gardens

back in february, i had the opportunity to get my hands painty on a project for better homes and gardens. friend, studio neighbor, and illustrator james gulliver hancock did the initial stoop drawing, but he couldn’t be bothered to change the date of his wedding to create the large finished piece. so for a day, i got to be large scale painter eben! nice to get out of the studio, as well as getting to meet some lovely people.

the shoot took place and canoe studios in manhattan, and while i have nothing but love for the pencil factory, canoe has some views.
