Here's a piece I'm working on for 48 Hour Magazine. The theme, announced at noon today, is 'hustle'. We'll see how much more time I have to work on it - and what it looks like when it's finished.

New 826LA Time Travel Mart posters!


Finally some new stuff again! Since I left journalism (Los Angeles Times) for product design (Knock Knock), I've found I have less material I can post as it's finished BUT here (at last) are the new posters for 826LA. I'm very, very grateful for the opportunity to work with 826; they're smart, creative, and have a great mission. Everybody wins. I made these with help from Mac Barnett and Jon Korn, two very talented copywriters who were the brains behind the Time Travel Mart in Echo Park. The typefaces Turnpike and Featured Item were designed by Stu Sandler at Font Diner.
The script face, Vitrina, is from Cubanica.

You can buy these posters and a lot of other great stuff at 826la.org/store.

826:Tiny Vaudeville






Here's a preview of the poster for Tiny Vaudeville, a new-for-2009 monthly event to be put on by 826LA. When i was researching Vaudeville I learned that the word means 'voice of the city' and has also been described as 'literary burlesque', which makes it a great match for a booksy setup like 826. The plan is to do three or four versions with different iconography (film projectors, books, typewriters, microphones, etc) and also more of the legs that I drew. Those silver strappy mary jane heels from J.Crew finally paid off! Oh - this information is not real - the names are for type tests only.

Manifest Hope at the DNC

Denver was amazing. AMAZING. I saw my posters all over the city--I'm told that 3000 were distributed at the Women's Caucus! You can see more photos from the trip here.

Denver-ready!


These came back from the printer Tuesday - the stock is beautiful! They were printed at Heinz Weber in Santa Monica, and everyone there was really nice and helpful, and no one made fun of me for being so nervous about signing them. Everyone involved in this process has been fantastic!

Los Angeles Times: illustration

May 27 2008

I just did this spot for the Highway 1 section of the LA Times. In the column, the writer describes the experience of driving her parents' old Buick around Los Angeles. Her posh, hybrid-y friends mock her for cruising around in a passe giant, but in the old car, she finds she's surrounded by love and nostalgia.

we're soaking in it

I made this yesterday morning for my friend Alonso. Every year he makes an audio fruitcake for all of his friends. This year's title is "You're Soaking In It." I can't wait to hear it!

Going Away

One of my favorite people threw me a fantastic going-away party my last weekend in Detroit. Thanks, Mauricio!
