"Stop, Think, Go, Do" in Typostrate

Blog Typostrate just reviewed Steven Heller and my book "Stop, Think, Go, Do"


20th Anniversary of Schindler's List at JFF Zagreb

Director of Jewish Film Festival Zagreb, Branko Lustig produced many well known movies.
He received two oscars for producing Gladiator and Schindler's List. This year's 8th Festival of Tolerance - JFF Zagreb is dedicated to 20th anniversary of Schindler's List, with special guest Ralph Fiennes, one of the main actors of the movie. 

For this event we designed the poster and billboard which are complimenting the identity of the festival.

Complaints! postcards

I just received the box that includes 72 postcards of posters from the exhibition organized by The Wolfsonian - FIU. Three of the postcards are with my art!

The poster exhibition was called "Complaints! An Inalienable Right" and was curated by Steven Heller in conjunction with Power of Design 2014: Complaints.

In The Wolfsonian Museum Daily Post blog you can read more about the exhibition and posters.

These are my illustrations of complaints:

All lazy minds think alike

I have always thought laziness is important for creativity. Maybe because I am lazy.
In 1977 I was lazy but I needed to do a comic for youth paper "Polet".
I tried to be clever and multiplied the same drawing with little adjustments,
just to look different, and then redrew little bit four of the drawings,
and in couple of hours I got myself a comic with sarcastic title "Born To Be Wild".

In 1983 I saw a poster - comic by Milton Glaser for "Mostly Mozart Festival" in Lincoln Center,
with the very same idea.

It is just a proof that all lazy minds think alike.

New York Times Op-Ed Pages

From 1992-1993 I was the art director of New York Times Op-Ed pages. 
I had the extreme pleasure to work with some of the top writers and illustrators. 

My editor, Mike Levitas, supported me in creating some quite unusual pages, 
which were very "experimental" for the New York Times at that time. 

Here are some of them.

Tony Tasset, Artists Monument

For the 2014 Whitney Biennial, artist Tony Tasset has chosen to take his Artists Monument
outside of the Museum’s galleries and present it in Hudson River Park, 17th Street between
Chelsea Piers and Pier 57. Just a few blocks away from my house!

The multicolored acrylic panels of Tasset’s Artists Monument are etched with the names
of 392,486 modern and contemporary artists, ranging from Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol
to emerging artists.

My name is inscribed twice. I'm not sure if that is because of my split personality,
or because I am twice the artist?
