Two Cool Posters

There's no design like 1930's design! Today I found out about this amazing illustrator and graphic designer, Tom Whalen; he's got some lovely imitations of this kind of art deco design (check out his Adventure Time and the Four Horsemen posters, they're great!). Here's a couple of poster designs from some time ago...

When You Ride Alone You Ride With Bush. Acrylic on Masonite + Digital.

The Life of Reagan

I was always fascinated by two things: Terry Gilliam's Animations (especially by the intro to the film "The Life of Brian"), and the wrinkles in Ronald Reagan's face. This is a small homage to these two guys.

As small note on the side, here's a real quote by Ronnie, back in good ol' 1982. It may be a comic strip, but it's the truth.

Two Friends from the Brown Daily Herald

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with two of my favorite illustrations I made for the cover of the magazine The Brown Spectator. I envision a little bit of "New Yorker" going on in future publications!

The Triumphs of Cowboy Diplomacy. Gouache on Illustration Paper.

Hugo Chavez Crossing the Alps. Acrylic on Illustration Paper.
