Pop

Adam Scott Aukerman continue talkin’ U2 as they dive right into U2’s ninth studio album Pop. They’ll discuss the 1995 single “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” from the Batman Forever soundtrack which served as a bridge to Pop, the PopMart Tour which was announced from a New York K-Mart, and Scott goes through his alternate mix of Pop. Plus, they’ll discuss the new U2 album delay and talk about the Batman movies in another edition of “I Love Films.”

Hey! Kind folks at Earwolf using my U2 drawing.  I am humbled, honored, and a little hungry.  

Guys! Here’s the official cover for Art History Paper Dolls, dropping August 5th from the incredible Chronicle Books.
I’ll share more as it gets closer, but just wanted to give a quick peek into the book, which (here comes the pitch!) features 16 fully cut-outable art masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Henri Matisse, Salvador Dali, Jackson Pollock, and more.  Each one has an “in-progress” version of their famous works, and an array of other educational and interactive accessories, including Van Gogh’s removable ear! You can cut it right off.
Chronicle has made a truly beautiful package with this book, and I can’t wait for you to see it in full. 
Pre-order here! High-res

When I gotta get motivated, I put this baby on.  Ben Gibbard is always the perfect mix of energy and deep, debilitating depression to get something done to.    

I try to keep close by a constant reminder of why we work.  To occasionally afford small, plastic things.  (Alert: Next Generation toys are cheaper than they’ve ever been.) High-res

Had a lot of fun working with Variety on a full-page image celebrating Glee’s 100th episode this week.  Got to play around with a brighter palette and take a crack at designing some custom Glee-centric pins.  Above are the final and initial sketches.

Very happy to say I’m coming up on a year of working with New York Times Magazine, doing tiny weekly spots for their One Page Magazine feature.  Each week is an invaluable lesson in learning what does and doesn’t work from the great ADs at the magazine, and hopefully it’ll rub off more and more.  At the very least, I haven’t been fired or sued, yet…

Here are a handful of my favorites from the past year.
