the news section

By "news" of course, we mean that which is new. Information, projects, ideas, that sort of thing. Maybe sometimes now and then you might find the "recent" and occasionally something quite "old" might find its way on to these pages. Possibly it could be in the form of an illustration, or perhaps I"m just behind the curve in some way. Enjoy.

Of Great and Mortal Men

A year or so ago, the amazing Keri Smith dropped me an email asking if I’d take part in a project that her husband, Jefferson Pitcher and two of his friends, Christian Kiefer and Matthew Gerken, were working on. It’s a collection of 43 songs, each about a different president. So, you know, there’s a song about Eisenhower. And one about Lincoln. And Reagan. Etc. I asked if I could have the one with the sideburns. And so I was asked to illustrate Chester Arthur, our 21st president.
So then yesterday, Oct 8, I hear a story about the project on National Public Radio and I find that they included my Arthur in the nice slideshow. You can read more about the project here, with links to buy the thing. Enjoy.
