I’m on the cover of the New York Times Style section! Thank you to Oriol Malet for sending me a photo of the illustration in the wild. 

Erik and I had just returned from a wonderful two-week vacation in Switzerland and Italy when I got this job, so I was totally ready to draw a couple who ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND EACH OTHER driving through a lovely sunny Italian vista. 

Above you can see my first idea for the piece, but I knew they wanted me to keep it lighthearted. 

And I would be kind of a jerk if I didn’t add that Hateful Wife Frantically Looking For The Next Flight Home On Expedia.com is wearing a silk dress inspired by the painted silk creations of Yanyan Huang.
