Spotted two especially lovely illustrations in yesterday’s New York Times Sunday Review. One for an article about the environmental impact of air conditioning, by Victo Ngai:

And this one about how to be more productive by taking time off, by Vidhya Nagarajan:

Both of their portfolios are stunning.

Business cards!

April 19, 2012

New Business Cards!

I picked up my business cards from Moo.com yesterday evening!  They’re in East Providence, so it was a short trip over– nice to save money and time on the shipping.

(Well, I should have saved time. Funny story: I was going to post this right when I got home, but I locked my keys in the car in their parking lot. Oh thank you, thank you AAA. I don’t know why I don’t have your number in my speed dial. And thank you to the nice people at Moo who let me hang out inside even though their office was closing.  Anyways, this meant I spent the rest of the evening rushing around. Hilarious.)

I think they came out pretty cute. It was a last minute decision to go with Moo, so I didn’t really take full advantage of the different images option. But I’m happy with the two I picked.

New Business Cards!

I especially love the back.

So thumbs up for Moo– good quality, easy interface, and great customer service.– Even if you don’t lock your keys in the car, they’re still really nice and helpful.

Video Monday: Rear Window Loop

April 2, 2012

Video Mondays

By gathering the appropriate scenes and then placing them in one wide shot, filmmaker Jeff Desom created a video installation of the neighborhood events as they unroll in Hitchcock’s film “Rear Window.” I love this.

I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.

The whole thing takes twenty minutes to screen, but below is a time-lapse. Wouldn’t you love to see it in person?

Pretty sweet, right?

The Best Nanny Money Can Buy

March 30, 2012

Did you guys read the article “The Best Nanny Money Can Buy” in the NY Times Sunday Magazine last week? Being a former nanny of a zillion years, plus a huge fan of illustrator Jillian Tamaki, who illustrated the piece, I was intrigued to say the least.

Turns out these nannies were way outta my league:

A nanny can increase her marketability if she can help manage an art collection, draft correspondence, wash and fold 50 linens a day and help set up philanthropic events. Bonus points if she can do it all in Mandarin.

I suppose I could figure out how to do all of those things, but almost definitely not in Mandarin.

Isn’t that illustration great? (Remember when I illustrated nannies for Time Out magazine?)

Happy weekend everybody!

PS. Oh yes, this is happening tomorrow. Do you ever participate? I’m usually not up for grand symbolic gestures that ultimately feel a bit empty (–and have large corporate sponsors.) But the thought of everything going dark is just so wonderful…

You may have noticed, but last week I quietly launched my new site. I still have some portfolio sections to add in and some other fixing up to do, but it’s about done folks! I’m pretty excited to have a site that shows off all of my work. And just in time for a new postcard mailing!

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
