Picture of a draft sketch that Simon emailed me for the series ‘Postcards From Perth’ to accompany ‘Perth, Australia’ by Julian Hewitt (issue 3, The Fade, Spring 2010)
I thought, given Simon’s momentous achievement last week, that it was a good time to put on a bit of a digital retrospective of the incredible work he has done for Ampersand since 2008 – his work appears in every issue but number 5.
Simon is Ampersand’s resident illustrator. He and I have been friends since we met at Sydney University in 2001.
We’re thrilled to congratulate Ampersand resident illustrator Simon Greiner for winning the 2013 New Yorker’s Eustace Tilley contest – his hilarious artwork will be featured on the cover of next week’s bumper issue. Just to be clear, I said THE NEW YORKER COVER.
Of course you’ll be able to see Simon’s work in the next issue of Ampersand, also.
