    A little behind posting this one, but I did a piece for Nautilus, a great science publication. This current issue is all about big bangs. The article I worked with is about the big bang theory being a form of creation myth among many other creation myths found in human history. As early as 2600 BC Sumerians describe the earth and sky being separated allowing for the creation of humans. Even earlier, around 2300 BC there are references to Atum (the sun god) in Egyptian pyramid texts, spitting out air and moisture. Naming seems to be a big part of these ancient myths, a reoccurring theme. Many thanks to AD Len Small!

    another piece for Nautilus, about cooling down the body in extreme cases of cardiac arrest. This process slows down the metabolism and decelerates brain death in patients who no longer have a pulse, giving doctors more time. Once everything is repaired the body is gradually brought back to normal temperatures. It’s like something out of a science fiction novel.

    I did the artwork for the Society of Illustrators call for entries poster! It was both an honor and a bit of a daunting prospect when this year’s chair Chris Buzelli asked if I wanted to do the poster since it’s mailed to almost every illustrator imaginable…but I really enjoyed working on it especially since I pretty much got to draw whatever I wanted! The poster is beautifully designed by the amazing Lotta Nieminen and printed using three pantone colors. Many many many thanks to Chris, Lotta and Kate!

    I finally got my copies! Wanted to share a few more interior images, and there’s also a big foldout in the middle showing the big fight. Seeing everything in person is even better than I imagined! The care taken with the binding and printing is simply amazing. A big thank you to Marco and everyone else involved in the production!

    my first picture book is finally out!!! One of my most time consuming project to date, but also the most enjoyable! Re Tigre (Tiger King) is published by Orecchio Acerbo in collaboration with Studio Else, both based in Italy. The whole book is screen printed in two colors and hand bound. Waiting for my copies to arrive so more soon, but in the meantime here are some interior spreads

    written by the American author James Thurber, the story is a social commentary on the futility of war, full of wit, sage advice and angry animals. James Thurber is one of my favorites when it comes to modern fables and in addition to writing he also created numerous cartoons published in the New Yorker. The original text was translated into Italian and currently the book is only sold in Europe. But there’s an English edition in the works! Possibly coming out late next year. If you are in Italy or Europe you can buy the book here
