In The Mean Time
Yasha Wallin is a great editor AND best friend but on this project, Anthony Hayden-Guest's new book of Cartoons and Rhymes "In the Mean Time," she neglected to tell me I would have to art direct, design the book, retouch 186 images, get the book approved, and to the printers in a few short weeks for not a million dollars. Anyway. I did it, it turned out so beautiful and Anthony had a great book launch party at Art Basel in Miami.This link from Art Lovers New York is a very nice review of the book. Thanks guys.
