One of the books I art directed and designed recently during the 3 months I filled in at Little, Brown is Secrets and Lies. Looking at the first book in the series, Truth or Dare, I loved how the art director emphasized focus on the finger and mouth. Since this was going to be a trilogy, I immediately thought about See No Evil, Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil.
Here’s a quick illustration I did recently of author Paolo Bacigalupi (Ship Breaker, Drowned City, Zombie Baseball Beatdown) for Oberlin Alumni Magazine!
Here’s a new Y.A. book cover I had the pleasure of illustrating and doing the typography for, called The Watcher in the Shadows, published by the fine folk at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. It’s a cool novel that’s a mix of Yiddish Policeman’s Union, Goodfellas, and Harry Potter! Check it out!
Exciting news: I just discovered that Middle School: My Brother is a Big Fat Liar has been on the New York Times Bestseller List for the past three weeks! Now that is seriously cool!
Earlier this week I had the awesome pleasure of speaking at Syracuse University’s Visual Communication Symposium. When I was an illustration student back in the day at S.U., it was my dream that someday I’d get to be one of the speakers myself. Well, I’m thrilled to say I can check that off the list.
