They're Gonna Put Me in the Movies

Here's the book trailer for "Diamond Ruby" written by Joe Wallace. At the 1:30 mark is a cameo appearance of the poster I made to promote the book. This trailer was all shot in and around Pleasantville, and combines new footage and historic footage.

Caricature of a Caricature

Here's an illustration I just did for an article about the demonization of Frances Fox Piven by Glenn Beck and those of his ilk. It was a good opportunity to draw someone who really doesn't need much tweaking to become a caricature. He has always reminded me of Howard Beale, who was fictional and seen as an extreme satirical character back when "Network" was released in 1976. Watching the movie now, there is nothing extreme or satirical about it. It just seems prescient. A possibly mentally unstable individual, who is encouraged to act in outrageous ways for television ratings? Today we can't even count the Howard Beales.
