Irvington, NY is a Hudson Valley town with a lot of culture and an interesting history. The writer who created Rip Van Winkle, Washington Irving, called this beautiful community his home. I was thrilled to illustrate this poster for their annual street festival. Thanks to art director, Elena Erber, for this fun project!
I carried this hand-drawn sign in the People's Climate March over the Hudson back in April. I’m thrilled it will be included in a book, Posters for Change, published by Princeton Architectural Press. Thanks so much to the jury! (oil pastel and pencil on poster paper)
Here's a little meditation on symbols. Without a doubt, the American bald eagle is a powerful representation of the freedom which America stands for. In contrast, the current U.S. president is glorifying the idea of building a "big beautiful wall", one which would run along our southern border with Mexico. To my mind, a project of such monumental proportion would create a different sort of symbol for the United States. I would argue that walls are completely incongruous with the freedom our country so proudly promotes.
Here's a new piece for HR Magazine, which is a take-off on the classic "Uncle Sam - I want You" poster. It accompanies an article about the US government's efforts to attract more mellennials to work for them. Art director Mari Adams simply asked me to create a younger version of Uncle Sam wearing Beats headphones. It was really fun. Thanks Mari!
