Mustache Mural

This piece was for an article about a mural at a college in Cincinnati. The mural was painted in the 30's and the artist placed "toothbrush mustaches", similar to Hitler's, on most of the men. He refused to paint them out so they hired someone else to do so. Supposedly you can still see the over-painting. For the Dr. Know column of Cincinnati magazine.

This piece stems from a sketch I did for an article about how to make baseball more interesting and dramatic. The art director chose a different sketch, but I liked this one. I had fun taking it to completion for my own satisfaction. 

Eesti Ekspress Newspaper Interview

I recently had a nice interview with a reporter from the Eesti Ekspress newspaper. He was a great sport and came all the way to Philadelphia for a chat. 

The interview is in Estonian, but it has some pictures of my work and may give you a nice introduction to what the Estonian language looks like. "Kalalinna karikaturist" translates as "Fishtown caricaturist" after the neighborhood I live in. Coincidentally, Tallinn, Estonia has a neighborhood called Kalamaja, which roughly translates as Fish House or Fishtown. Thanks to my cousin Stella for teaching me about this!
