!! So Excited !! Today I have my first ever illustration in the New York Times! It's definitely a milestone in the career of any illustrator and one I'll never forget. You can read the article here.
The article about how TV shows these days infultrate our lives and bring continuity to the fragmented way we go about living. It goes on to talk about how we are able to binge on hours of a single TV show in one setting due to DVD's and platforms like Hulu and Netflix. This is something I can totally relate to having just spent the holidays blowing through all of "Downton Abbey", the first season of "The West Wing", and, since this project has completed, "Homeland". I wanted to explore the feeling that these characters come to feel like part of your life even though they are just fictional characters that don't actually exist in real life.
This is my favorite part of the illustration. I like to call it "Heisenberg steals a cookie". Ha Ha.
Major THANK YOU to the talented art director with the coolest name in town, Aviva Michaelov for this assignment. I'll never forget it!
