Sachin Teng

Another one of my former students who's doing some really nice work. Sachin's got some pretty nasty skills and he's as good on traditional as digital. I think what I like best about his stuff is his use of subject matter as design element, without turning it into simple pattern - he really keeps it dynamic.

PC World

Sorry about the posting binge, but I figure better to throw stuff up when I got it, 'cause often I don't! :) Some new spots for Beth Kamoroff at PCWorld about Google's semi-web-monopoly, and a recall of Sony laptops that were literally melting (!?) Aren't you glad you're a Mac person, reader? All this confirms one of my worst fears: apparently, computers are the future.

Phillip Knight's Sketchbook Book

I was delighted to be a part of UK illustrator and designer Phillip Knight's new book "GARP: Sketchbook Process" which includes some really great illustrators and designers. It totally gives you the voyeuristic pleasure of picking someone's brain along with peeking in their sketchbooks. One of the other people featured and a new favorite is Iain Macarthur - I love his mix of obsessive tightness and pattern, coupled with his pure draughtsmanship and dynamism.

Owen Sherwood

My old college roomie and great illustrator Owen Sherwood has some new pieces up on his blog including a great series on the world cup. I love his combination of pencil and digital.
