BEST OF 2013

Happy New Year everybody! We are continuing the tradition of asking our artists to select their favorite work from 2013. This year we have a fantastic collection with a little something for everybody: newspaper pieces for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post; magazine work for Rolling Stone, Time, Scientific American, and American Lawyer; images for university pubs such as Harvard and Seattle University; book covers for Knopf and Thames and Hudson; interesting posters for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and USA Soccer, plus a couple of award winners from the Society of Illustrators. These little thumbnails can be blown up to be viewed in all their glory. Before 2014's craziness begins, please take a few minutes to enjoy.
