Take a look at these haaands: they’re mine (one-handed photos are hard).

A slightly edited version appears on today’s NYT Upshot. The one below is an earlier attempt, rejected for its gloomy trashiness.

Here’s also a very kind article on my Tolstoy tribute from Washington Post. My name also ended up on the Guardian, which is exciting.

PS. I’m leaving for SPX soon, more details tomorrow!

I’ve been wanting to read Moomin for so long. I think it’s time I gave in and bought the first book. I always see the characters floating around on the internet and I love the designs so much. So gooooooood!!

I drew today’s Google Doodle celebrating Leo Tolstoy’s 186th birthday. Big thanks to Ryan for the assignment, to Sophia for assistance with parallaxing and other complicated things, to the engineers/programmers who made things move and to everyone who liked it and wrote nice things to me!

Here’s the full interactive version if you missed it on the homepage (you can drag the scenes instead of clicking to see the transitions better).

And here’s an illustrated blogpost about the process (as usual, I did it with my demented method of inking everything separately).

PS. I’ll use this opportunity to plug my debut graphic novella (In A Sense) Lost & Found which is out today. Coincidence?! Yes.

Zainab Akhtar called it in a Publishers Weekly review "an utterly immersive beauty." She’s usually right about everything.

This Google doodle was awesome, the things you did with the layering were fantastic!

The Aftershocks
medium.com

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Some smallish sketchbook watercolour studies! The odd brownish clumps in the first image are what gold ink looks like scanned. Normally I take photos when I use gold ink, but I didn’t really feel up to it today.
