The Pitmen Painters
In the middle of that Naga Fireball job, I got a call from Jordan Awan at the New Yorker asking if I could turn something around really quickly for their upcoming issue. The assignment came in on Saturday afternoon with a Monday morning deadline, which was exactly when that Naga Fireball stuff was due! The time was cramped, but when I saw what the piece was about it was impossible to turn down.
