fast company: apps for the 1%

another illustration for farhad manjoo and the lovely folks at fast company. a rising arena of apps are those for sourcing tasks, be it grocery delivery, car service, or putting together furniture. with these apps, the question that is getting asked (and possibly answered) is whether this type of micro service is something that can expand to a greater user base than just the wealthy.

in case you are wondering, the best named of these services is taskrabbit.

newsweek/daily beast: naomi wolf's vajayjay

the feminist naomi wolf just came out with a new book titled vagina: a new biography. while newsweek wanted an illustration, they also wanted to make sure that it wasn’t offensive or lewd and so requested personifications of the letter V using their typeface. a fun project with a quick turnaround, and of course a few gems sprinkled into the conversations regarding this illustration:

“And/or, maybe the letters themselves are a reddish–dare I say pinkish hue—to reference, well, you know…?”

always a pleasure working with the fine folk of newsweek.

topps bunt: darrrr-yllllll! darrrrrrrrrr-yllllllll!

over the past couple of the months, the topps bunt app has reached version 2.0 and beyond, an iphone version, new avatars, and becoming snappier and slicker. if you haven’t downloaded or looked at it recently, what are you waiting for? it’s free. there isn’t much baseball season left. do it. go. now. i’ll wait.

> download topps bunt!

added bonus: the app has been taken over for a limited time by none other than darryl strawberry, former mets superstar. i am not a mets fan (mets suck!), but as an illustrator i’ll whore myself to the all-mighty dollar. thus, i drew darryl, only losing a small piece of my soul in the process. please enjoy this hate filled drawing.
