Last week I had the opportunity to work with Barbara Richer of the New York Times’ Sunday Styles section on a piece about Facebook’s new gender identification tools. We kept it symbols based, and focused on the empowerment it gives users to specify their identity. I love this way this one turned out.
Come to this. It’ll be great.
I will be running a three-part workshop with Cooper-Hewitt from Tuesday, February 11 to Thursday, February 13. They will begin at 4pm to 6pm (and slightly past) on those days. The free event is geared towards beginning-to-intermediate designers at various skill levels, but everyone’s invited to participate. Event details are available online, and registration open through the Cooper-Hewitt website.
Basically, it will a crash course on effective poster-making. Ideas will flourish, and weakness will be pounded into submission.
I recently had the pleasure of working with the prestigious Atlantic Theater Company on the look for their production of 3 Penny Opera (of “Mack the Knife" fame). Atlantic Theater Company is the alma mater of some great performers like Elizabeth Olsen and Clark Gregg.
So naked and drippy.
The show runs from Mar 12 - May 4. Buy your tickets here
Last week was Art Basel. For the second year in a row I went to Miami, under the representation of Baang+Burne, which was awesome. I got to do an installation at the Surfcomber with Joshua King and was dunked in the pool several times. Its going down in the record books. If you didn’t follow it which it was happening, here’s your chance to see it.
I worked with Barbara Richer at the New York Times for an illustration in Bruce Feiler’s column in the Sunday Styles section. It’s about couple who work together. There are tips on how to not hate each other. I can’t master them, but maybe you can. Check out some alternative ideas below.

As a continued part of our 125th Anniversary celebration, Katz’s Delicatessen is proud to introduce The Space, a pop-up gallery and apparel shop. Every month we will introduce new collections by talented artists and designers who will fill the location with deli-inspired pieces. In this way, The Space will serve as a tribute not only to the restaurant’s on-going connection to the neighborhood, but also to the people who live, work, and create art in all its forms right here on the Lower East Side.
Here’s a typographic piece I did for SLAM to highlight Derrick Rose’s triumphant return to the NBA after a year away (ACL). I’m always stoked when I have the opportunity to work with this look.
Next week I am participating in a silent auction at Reed Space for a great cause, that includes some of the finest names in creativity. Honestly, my words aren’t enough. Please visit LoveforLeni.com and hope to see you at the show.
