What Were Neanderthals Like?

I recently worked with John Sandford at Muse Magazine on a feature article about the characteristics and lifestyles of Neanderthal man. 

How easy would it be to recognize a Neanderthal if you ran into one at a bus stop? Our Neanderthal here is characterized by his heavy brow, long nose, wide brain case, and primitive reading material. Homo sapiens are notable for their hot dog skateboards, bubblegum, handheld videogames, and a propensity for putting shirts on dogs.

Neanderthals may have been smarter than we typically give them credit for.

Life sure was rough for these guys.

This is my finished piece for the Pokemon Battle Royale show held next month at the Light Gray Art Gallery in St. Paul, Minnesota. Alakazam is some kind of psychic jackal, I think? 

There will be a few prints of this dude available at the show if anyone is planning on attending. From what I've seen, it's going to be a great show.

I drew this a few weeks before Moebius died, and it kinda ended up as a weird tribute to him. Kali bought me "40 Days Dans La Desert" a year or so ago and it's been one of my favorite books ever since.

Something in the Air

I have a two-page spread in this week's edition of Adweek Magazine, accompanying an article about retails businesses using subtle perfume as a sort of olfactory branding to draw people into their stores.

Super quick turnaround on this guy -- assignment comes in Friday night, final goes out Tuesday night.

The magazine is printed with scratch-and-sniff ink over the perfume areas, which is grass scented. Fun!
