1996 Sci-Fi becomes 2012 Reality
Back in 1996 I was commissioned by Daniel Carter at Wired Magazine to illustrate a Science Fiction story that takes place 100 years in the future after sea levels rose from Climate Change and flooded New York City. At the time we decided on this playful image with a Jet Ski messenger blasting up the rivers of water between the skyscrapers. The last thing I expected was to see this occur in my lifetime, let alone a mere 16 years later. The photos in the gallery below show the reality that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York, eerily similar to our fantastical sci-fi illustration.
Miguel Cotto vs. Austin Trout
Another great assignment working with the Showtime creative team to photograph the poster for the epic, upcoming boxing match, Miguel Cotto vs. Austin Trout. “Showdown: Cotto vs. Trout” is a 12 round battle between Four-Time and Three-Division World Champion Miguel Cotto and WBA Super Welterweight World Champion Austin Trout taking place on December 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Meeting and photographing these talented and fearsome athletes was exhilarating but I’m glad they were scheduled separately; wouldn’t want them to engage in a pre-match altercation in my studio. I recommend tuning into Showtime at 9pm on Dec. 1 to witness the action.
