This past week I did another illustration for the Lives section of The New York Times Magazine.  The article was about the complicated relationships between four sisters, so I depicted them as slightly crumpled and torn paper dolls.  You can find a link to the article and my illustration here.

I'll be working on a couple more for the magazine this week and I'll be sure and post them when they've been published next week.

I'd been running low on my previous business cards and decided to try out a new design.  I'd used my Print GOCCO to make the last ones, but they were far simpler; in a single colour and simple design.

I created the new design yesterday and had Jenna help me cut paper to size for printing.  I wanted these to be fun and use a couple of my favourite ink colours, (I used the same ones to print this small edition).  I think they sort of look like party confetti, don't you?  Fun!

I was recently commissioned by the owners of Mjölk to create a print design for an upcoming exhibition they're having with renowned Japanese designer, Oji Masanori.  Masanori will be in attendance, as well as a number of the craftspeople that help produce the designs he's created; including Studio Prepa, (glass studio), and woodworkers from Asahikawa.

For the design of the print, I used some of Masanori's most well known designs to create a small collection of items in brass, wood and porcelain.  This is one of my favourite projects that I've done in the last while, but it was very easy to work with such beautiful designs as subjects!  The limited edition, (of 25), giclée print is 17" x 22" and printed on archival paper with archival inks, and will be available at the exhibition opening at Mjölk on August 11-12, 2012.
