Cicada magazine commisioned me to illustrate a short story called A Very Continental Weekend. the assignment was such a fun challenge because the story took place in the 1950s. i had a great time watching old movies and dolling up the friends who modelled for me. these drawings are two of my favorite illustrations that i've ever done. the boy on the far left in the scene to the right, by the way, is me as i would appear on the twilight zone.
