Oil, Oil, Everywhere
The gulf spill continues unabated and with that will be a flood of images from illustrators commenting on this heartbreaking catastrophe. My effort above did not make the cut, but Barry Blitt managed to score this weeks New Yorker cover with a great piece on the same subject. For many months now, Greg Manchess, with the help of Tara Jacoby and Kate Fiertag, has been feverishly curating an exhibit at the Society of Illustrators entitled, Earth: Fragile Planet, work by artists concerning the environment. The timing of the show could not be better. The show opens tomorrow to the public, with a reception to be held this Friday evening. I'm certain this is going to be an outstanding exhibition.
