1984 Apple computer ad

December 30, 2011

Whoa! I recently found this old ad in my files. I think it was in 1984 that Apple announced a new computer, and they asked known Canadian artists, designers and other creatives to pose with the new product. I’m in the middle…as I recall I was completely computer illiterate before then!

President Newt?

Hard to believe but it may actually be true. Newt Gingrich is currently the Republican favorite. Here’s a portrait I did earlier for The New Yorker

Happy holidays 2011!

Pam Sommers/ The Illustration Gallery

December 12, 2011

Way back when, there was a gallery in the east village in NY that sold original illustrations! Many of us remember the wonderful shows and the GREAT openings in particular. Sadly the gallery was only around for 6-7 years. I recently had dinner with Pam Sommers who ran the gallery. Earlier she published a couple of books on her own…one of them was “Recipes for Disaster!” It’s still available on Amazon. Pam is now at Rizzoli, and they’re publishing some amazing books!
