Daddy’s New Job
by Koren Shadmi
I’ve been subscribed to Koren Shadmi‘s Livejournal titled Paper Feast for a long time. Â This morning, while sipping my coffee and reading his latest entry called China Rocks, I did a quick search for his name on my site and was surprised that I’ve never mentioned him.
I’m rectifying that right now.
Koren is an amazing illustrator. Paper Feast is a behind-the-scenes look at his work for newspapers and magazines when they ask Koren to provide an illustration for their articles. Â The process is as amazing as the results.
Here are some of my most recent favorites; China Rocks, What’s Driving Toyota?, Daddy’s New Job (pictured), and well, I could go on and on.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a must-subscribe.

My friend Anton Peck, who is an amazing artist, is offering to illustrate an avatar for you from a photo for only $65USD. Â Here is more on what he is offering to do.
“The Original ArtworkÂ - You’ll get a large (600 pixels square) layered photoshop document, created in a way that will allow you to change the colors, or modify the image any way that you’d like. Once you’ve bought it, it’s yours to modify as much as you like. It will be yours to keep.
“Page LinkÂ - I’ll give you a link to any URL you’d like from this very page. As illustrations are created, the thumbnails will be posted here with your name and and website. So, you get to be a rock star right here, with all the Google-happinessâ„¢ that goes along with it.”
In the late 1990s I commissioned an illustrated avatar for myself that cost a lot more than $65USD so this is a steal across the board. Â So not only do I recommend it based on price, but I also recommend it based on the quality of the work that I know Anton can do. Â In fact, I have one of his original pieces hanging on the wall right in front of me.
