brian rea

i was reading the new york times online yesterday. while i adore many things about the nyt, i really enjoy the modern love column. it is quite interesting. —anyway, in reading it yesterday, i noticed brian rea's artwork adorning the page, so it was doubly excellent. what do you think?

witty. simple with detail in the right places (i.e. in the facial expressions). this is the type of illustration that makes you perceive a story differently. or perceive the writer in a different way, perhaps. i'm so glad that the new york times decorates their articles with these little gems, because a) they are appropriate and aesthetically pleasing; and b) they give me something to write about on a slow day.

buenos días, miercoles.
until next time...!
