Just finished judging design category for The Art Directors Club‘s 85th Annual Awards, and I have to say it was one of the most inspiring and exciting experiences. Thank you so much for everyone at ADC for their hardwork, fellow judges for being so inspiring and kind, and Mr. Brian Collins of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide for choosing me to be there. It was also great to see wonderful designs from Japan, and I was happy I was able to help translate some of the works. The results will be announced in spring.

Some new illustrations… GQ, Outside, Domino (all March), Mother Jones (March/April), CIO Decisions (January) and Realms of Fantas.
