Jason Seiler has been among the favorites of the New York Observer to illustrate their cover. The most recent issue, "The Incredible Shrinking Budget", is a perfect combination of humor and satire, truth and ridiculousness.
Here is what Jason said in his blog...
"New cover I painted this week. This one was a lot of fun to do, and as usual, these turnarounds are fairly quick. I started sketches and ideas on Friday and the final was due the following Tuesday! I really enjoy doing these covers for the Observer, this is my third cover for them and I hope to do many more!"
