Illustrations worthy of a letter.
I’m not a real stalker. When I admire an artist’s work, though, sometimes I have to say something. I’ve been seeing these captivating illustrations in the NEW YORK TIMES on Sunday for several years now. Today there was such a good one that I decided, “I have to find him.”
He didn’t go to Rhode Island School of Design, as far as I can tell, because there’s not a Wikipedia site for him. I went to his website and found his address, so I hope that’s still correct… I don’t have any expectation of a response. I just wanted to tell him his work is
cool and captivating and he’s able to tell a story of human isolation and our need for connection in a way that a long article sometimes can’t come close to capturing the same way.
And that’s worth my sending him a “Thank You”.
