    @Michael Spitz nice! i didn't immediately get all of them, but i guess when coupled with text it becomes obvious. Love how different they are tho

    Very interesting approach to the icon design, I really like how three-dimensional they look. Just wondering if the last one, for Nightlife, doesn't stick out a bit with its linear form?

    Noticed these when I was reading the last issue and I was wondering if they were new. Giving shadow to the lights gives them the feeling as if they are made of something with weight like paper - I like it! The glasses feel quite different from the others to me - is there a reason for the departure?

  10. A quick update / new addition to the series of spot illustrations that I designed for The New Yorker back in January.

    Always enjoy knocking out a good ampersand.

    Hey Michael! It's been ages, I hope you're doing well (and don't miss Croatia too much). Was just reading a recent New Yorker yesterday and was thrilled to be able to point out I knew the guy who made these! Love the theatre one especially. Anyway, looking forward to catching up soon! Take care.

    @Claire Great to hear from you!! Again, it's been far too long! Hope all is well!

    Glad to hear you dig the illustrations, and thanks for the under cover promotion! Looking forward to seeing you around again!
