The Future of Immigration

In 2003, I created this illustration about "The Future of Immigration Policy" for Rolling Stone Magazine.

Unfortunately they thought it was too harsh and ultimately decided not to publish it.

The Greed Merchants, illustration

My illustration from 14 years ago for the book cover of The Greed Merchants by Philip Augar. The book art director was Joseph Perez.

Funny, he even has a red tie.


William Gibson's Archangel

I just acquired these pencil drawings by Jackson "Butch" Guice for William Gibson's Archangel #3 splash page 2 and page 10.
Below you can see how they look ink and colored. I prefer the pencil drawings.

Milton Glaser's Grand Union

Many designers know that Milton Glaser designed the Grand Union super store logo and the famous pear sculpture in front of them (1975). But not many know that he also designed thousands of packaging for Grand Union over 20 years. Even less designers know that he actually designed super markets, some of them being more than 100,000 sq. ft. He revolutionized the interior design of supermarkets and the consumer experience.

A few years ago he threw away one half of a broken and beat up architectural model of a Grand Union. The other half disappeared many years before that.I took it out of the garbage, along with all the parts I was able to find. 

Finally, I finished the ''restoration'' this weekend. So here it is together with the pear in the front! 

To help you understand the model better, the entrance is on the ground level and the market itself is below ground.
