In heaven, everything is fine. This here piece was out in the Sunday Boston Globe a couple weeks back. It's for the review of the new Jesse Ball book, "A Cure For Suicide." Not quite a dystopian novel, but the story features a society that is definitely alien to us. War and prisons have been eradicated, but suicide still persists. The society's answer is a process that completely erases the suicidal's memory. Not just the memories that involve the reasons for the individual wanting to take his/her life, but clears the whole slate. Much like a baby, the individual must then re-learn how to talk, eat, and function as a person.
I'm a freelance illustrator. I've worked for a number of clients, including the New York Times, Newsweek, Pentagram Design, The Atlantic, The New Yorker and many others. I've been recognized by the Denver Egotist, Society for News Design, Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, Luerzer's Archive and American Illustration. When I'm not illustrating I'm probably playing games with my family. We like to have nightly shadow puppet contests. My best pose is "The Sinking of the Lusitania." It's an awesome pose, but I can only do it once.
