To give you a quick tour of this place, the “portfolio” section is a 36-project overview of my fave illustrations from the last decade, a mix of editorial, commercial, and personal work. The “shop” section includes dozens of my art prints, some of which are personal projects, and others that are reprints of illustrations of mine that have earned lives outside of their original context. 
the Soviet Union 18x24” print ($60 CAD)

The below is a representation of the Soviet Union in all its “splendour,” including the heads of Lenin, Stalin, Kruschev, Brezhnev, and Gorbachev, a copy of
Das Kapital, a Lada, Russian Vodka, a factory, Gulag, launch button, IOUs, Warsaw Pact flags, etc. That little caption was written by yours truly, too, as was the concept and research behind the project. Why does it exist? In October of 2012 Print magazine released their "International" issue, meaning that they stowed their usual contributors' list and sought out new designers and illustrators from outside the United States to work with. The result: I received six full pages of the magazine to fill with a visual essay on the subject of my choice. I chose to make stacked-symbol personifications of international political units, institutions and phenomena, past and present, all under the title "International Bodies." This print, of course, was my favourite in that series. Dimensions include an approximate 1.5" margin. Printed in an open edition, signed and dated on reverse.
