Used to work at The New Yorker’s art department and always extremely helpful, Maximilian Bode is now a full time freelance illustrator. Congratulations, Max!  I am jealous of his beautiful Modest Mouse (band of my obsession right now!) illo in this week’s New Yorker.  According to a Rolling Stone article, a song that changed Isaac Brock’s life was “Life Is Still Sweet” by White Hassle, which is the band lead by friend-illustrator-musician Marcellus Hall. What a small world we live in, eh?
