Every year the New Yorker magazine has a contest for anyone to re-interpret their illustrative mascot, the New Yorker dandy himself, Eustace Tilley. Here are my submissions over the years.

Did an illustration for an article on the various gps systems that can be used by helicopter pilots. The author is trying to show how the screens and knobs vary and there is no standard for usage. Not something I would personally think about, but there you have it.
Here are some illos I did for our African curator. He's hoping to take what signage he's seen on pickup trucks in Sudan and have them written out and shown to locals. Apparently some of this text is in local dialects that don't translate into any specific written language. I think the script is really beautiful in itself.
These are illos I did of a board game for an article. It's called Megiddo and I believe it is stored at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (I worked from photos)
