The New York Times Magazine - Rat Paths of New York

A few weeks ago I illustrated a feature for the The New York Times about how urban wildlife gets around the city. I had a lot of fun drawing this for art director Matt Willey.

The New York Times Ethicist

Since November last year I've been a weekly contributor for The New York Times Magazine, illustrating The Ethicist column. It's a small conceptual illustration responding to a question about our morals and ethics. 

Thanks to Jason, Audrey, Drea and the rest of the design team I've been working with each week.

Shura Indecision

Shura asked me to re-work an old illustration for her new single Indecision.
This was really fun to work on and looks surprisingly like her (if she were to feature in Total Recall).
Look out for the limited edition vinyl version too.

Grace Print

I exhibited at the London Illustration Fair last weekend. Thanks to everyone who came down and bought my prints. Here is the Grace Jones one I made especially. Escher vibes.

American Horror Story: Freakshow

Just started watching the new series of American Horror Story. Loving Sarah Paulson's character, and Sarah in general, so I did a little drawing of Bette and Dot.

Little White Lies

One of my favourite magazines, Little White Lies, asked me to produce 5 surreal, portrait illustrations for their 55th issue, centred around 'Maps to the Stars' the new film by David Cronenberg. 

My favourites to draw were film directors Mike Leigh and Pawel Pawlikowski. 

Pelican Books

I was asked by London based clothing brand Super superficial to produce a T-shirt design for the re-launch of Pelican Books, the non-fiction branch of Penguin Books. 

See the finished piece here.


Poking a Dead Frog (formally 'And here's the Kicker..')

I recently received my copy of the book 'Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations With Today's Top Comedy Writers' by Mike Sacks, with a bunch of my illustrations in it. So great to see it in print after working on it on and off for almost a year! Big thanks to Mike for the collaboration.

I've neglected this blog..

It's a lot easier for me to update my website these days so I'm kind of neglecting this blog a bit.
As there's not much point posting exactly the same pictures on here as I do on my website, I'm going to make this more of a 'work in progress' blog.

The Debrief

Here's a little editorial illustration for The Debrief. It goes along side a piece of writing about one girls train of thought whilst waiting in a family planning clinic. Its slightly more light hearted than it sounds..

Portraits for 'And Here's the Kicker', book by Mike Sacks.

I've been working on a number of portraits to go along side interviews with American comedy writers for a book. Some of them are pretty big names. So far I've drawn Mel Brooks, Dan Clowes, the brothers who wrote the TV show 'Cheers', Carol Kolb who's one of the main writers at The Onion news, amongst others. Still a bunch more to come.

Here's a few to give you an idea..

This will be the sequel to Mike Sack's previous book of the same name.
You can see that here on Amazon.

Wrestlers, 1940's, Ioaw

Head modification portraits.

Here's a few of the portraits I did from the Tattoo Convention. They're all up on my website. www.louisezomeroy.com
