Independent UK

Dec 12th, 2009

I did a few things for this next weekend’s [of the 20th] Independent newspaper in the UK. I think it may be out on Sunday? I think it’s part of the magazine? I’m not sure the details, but if you’re over there, I’ll assume you know what I’m talking about.

There are more, but I like this one best. The illustrations accompany a Christmasy story by Louis de Bernieres.

Speaking of Christmas, I was dropping some stuff off at the Society of Illustrators today and decided to drop in at Bloomie’s since I’m looking for boots. I’m only slightly exaggerating when I say the shoe department was COMPLETE carnage and the first thing I thought of was “I wonder if this is what Baghdad looked like after they overthrew Saddam Hussein.” There is nothing like witnessing shopping-induced mayhem to make you feel ashamed to be a human being.

So many dead-eyed husbands.

Anyway. Apologies for the lack of sketchbooking lately. It’s always really crazy before the holidays.
