Jury Duty Day One

Common Reader



Well, day one of my scheduled Jury Duty, and it being Martin Luther King Day, I don’t have to report. Instead I finished up an illustration for the Common Reader this morning, and am about to send it on its merry way. I like how this one turned out.

Thanksgiving Leftovers

AHMM, ChronicleHE, Common Reader


A pleasant holiday in Chicago (the first celebrated at my son’s house, since his marriage in August), and now back home catching up on some quick turnaround work. Above is an illustration for the Chronicle of Higher Education, and, since these things tend to go in streaks, another ‘Uncle Sam’ themed illustration for a new client, The Common Reader for Washington University in St. Louis (a portrayal of a prison craft store purchase of an Uncle Sam figure made out of scrap metal parts).


I also finished up another fiction illustration for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine this morning (pictured below).
