Work/Life: My pages in the Directory of Illustration

These are my 2 pages in uppercase magazine's Directory of Illustration. 

Photos of my inspiration board, me in NYC, sketches and stuff currently hanging out on my fridge.
This is the pattern I created for the directory.
I would love to see this made into fabric or wallpaper.
Hello Mr. Sanderson or Schumacher....!
These are some drawings from my sketchbook.
As you can see not all of the phones made it into the final pattern. 
Sometimes you gotta Kill Your Darlings!

On Sept 6th I saw the documentary Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story
Tomi is one of my all time favourite illustrators (his economical line!! his humour! his fabulous kids books! his incredible political posters! his saucy erotic drawings!) and I can't recommend the doc enuf. Thanks so much to Glenn Sumi for the reco. :-)
