The Joy of Reading

I had the great honor of illustrating the cover of the special Sex Issue of the NY Times Book Review! Thanks to art director Nicholas Blechman for the assignment. It’s full of thoughtful and hilarious pieces on writing about sex - one of the stickier topics to tackle in literature. The issue also features an autobiographical comic by Alison Bechdel (one of my favorite cartoonists) and gorgeous spot illustrations by Luci Gutierrez (one of my new favorite illustrators). 

I’ve turned my cover illustration and a couple of my unused sketches into a series of posters titled The Joy of Reading. I’ll post the other drawings throughout the week. 


  1. Beautiful work!! Congratulations for the NYTimes spot :)

  2. C'est ce que l'on appelle en français, une "quatrième de couverture".
    Ce qu'il se passe sous les couvertures.

  3. It's so creative :o woa woa. How can I draw anything like this T.T
