Here, you can take a look at the further development of the interior illustrations.

Over the course of this process, some of the phobias were swapped out — but this exercise was an important step to the final illustrations.

“On Paper” at Gallerie Citi

This past Saturday, I attended the opening reception for an exhibit entitled “On Paper” at Gallerie Citi in Burlingame, California. The show features five artists who work in paper-based mixed media. I was there to support one of the artists — my mother Irene Zweig — who creates captivating pieces through deconstruction and reassemblage.

If anyone happens to be in the San Francisco Bay Area and would like to attend, the exhibit will be open through June 15th.
