New Yorker - Walkabout

Walkabout


Hey guys,

I just finished this illustration for the New Yorker on an article about the 1971 film, Walkabout. Here is the description from IMDB:

Two young children are stranded in the Australian outback and are forced to cope on their own. They meet an Aborigine on "walkabout": a ritualistic banishment from his tribe.

This illustration depicts a specific scene where the Aborigine boy does a mating dance for the young girl. It should be in next week's issue. Click here to see the sketch thumbnails.


have a great week,

Frank

Back in NY

Hello there,

I just returned to NY after an awesome trip to California, where I got to meet with some old friends, family, and talk a little business with some potential clients.
During my visit, I was actually able to round up the other two members of our blog The Plundering for a first-ever group photo!



Right before I left I did this illustration for Colin Tunstall at Esquire Magazine. it's a dual portrait of Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, about the changing face of comedy and how the more zany comedic stylings of Jim Carrey are beginning to feel a bit left-behind. It should see print some time in the next couple of months.

Also, here's a sketchbook diary type thing from my trip when I was hanging out with close friend and painter Natalia Fabia.

Enjoy!
