Misc. editorial work.

Parade Magazine

We had a blast illustrating the cover and interior spread for Parade Magazine’s Road Food issue last Sunday. Big thanks to our A.D. Richard Baker for the fun project.

Seattle Weekly Voracious

Seattle and food. Two of our favorite things. We were asked to create 2 covers for Seattle Weekly‘s annual Voracious issue. The issue highlights their top restaurant picks in the city, organized by neighborhood. Thanks to A.D. Jane Sherman for giving us plenty of creative freedom. Only on newsstands for a week! See it a tad bigger here.

We got 6 inches of snow yesterday. So naturally Seattle is shut down and I’m chugging coffee while drawing in my slippers. Decided to dust off a few more Grandpa illos in the process. These 5 span approx. 5 decades, with the last one created the same year he passed away.

Here’s a few fun character spots for a misc. newsletter, circa late 1940’s to early 1950’s …

Why Do We Still Get So Much Spam?

Here’s our latest spot for Wired’s ‘Burning Question’ series. This month’s question: “Why do we still get so much spam?”. If you own an iPad, check out the (simple) animated piece in the upcoming digital issue as well.

More editorial goodness from Grandpa.

Zakk Attakk

Check out your local newsstands now for the new issue of Revolver Magazine, featuring Zakk Wylde. We did the photo-illustration work for the cover and the feature, which meant many hours of cutting out little demon people to create the elaborate scenes. The cover image itself pays homage to recently deceased Frank Frazetta’s classic artwork.

Here’s another one from the files. Most likely late 1970’s. Post NASA freelance. Looks to be something for ‘Butte County’. Possibly a small local newspaper.

Books On Parade

Here’s a recent spot we did for Atlanta Magazine about how ‘bookish people like to party’. I couldn’t agree more.

Why Do We Still Have Power Cords?

Here’s a recent spot illustration for Wired’s monthly ‘Burning Question’ series. This month’s question: ‘Why Do We Still Have Power Cords’? Hint: they aren’t going away anytime soon.
