Dream, meet Nightmare.
I was contacted by Mother Jones sometime in January about doing an illustration for this months issue. Celebration!!! I love that magazine and have wanted to work for them for years. In the details, i found out they wanted one of those vintage travel postcards - spoofing the libertarian move to Chile, building a compound in Galts Gulch, seeking fresh air, political freedom, guns etc. Its certainly an awesome idea, but the nightmare part comes in with me trying to figure out how the hell i’d be able to make this. I wanted to give it a go however, and also thought it couldnt hurt to pitch a few of my own ideas. In the end we went in their original direction, so i wanted to do it the very best i possibly could. Here is the result! A super fun project, and one i feel very fortunate to be able to take on. Thanks very much to Ivy, one of my favorite AD’s for remembering me, and giving me the shot. You rule Ivy!
