Elie Nadelman

While working on an upcoming illustration, I had to find reference for a dead stag. I could recall an elegant sculpture I had seen years before in perfect detail, except for the name of the sculptor. After plowing through plenty of gore, I found Elie Nadelman's sculpture, Wounded Stag.

Nadelman's sculptures are so perfectly realized. They hit on that elusive and desirable spot between Brancusi sophistication and folk whimsy. Every piece is an easy favorite!

Meatpaper illustration

I had the pleasure of making a new illustration for this issue of Meatpaper Magazine. The article followed elementary school students in an experiment with local grass fed beef vs. the USDA patty. The whole magazine is as interesting as it is well designed, as always. Be sure to take a look!

I can't believe I haven't posted about these yet. These were what inspired me to experiment with applique and embroidery back in college. Sadly, I still don't have the book but thank goodness for google searches! Aren't the palettes incredible?

Awesome, awesome goodies from Ilana!

An original ByIlana shirt- check out the little bronze faceted buttons!
(p.s. she takes commissions)

I've been listening and enjoying Radio Lab for ages now yet somehow not really taking note of the program. That was until the episode about domestication really caught my attention.

This podcast is new to me but, so far, well worth a listen.
