Even superheroes aren't recession-proof.

world headquarters

lost at e minor

Before I'd even finished my morning coffee today, I got an email from someone in Pune, India complimenting me on my work seen on the "Lost at E Minor" website. In case you aren't familiar with them, here's how they describe themselves:

"Lost At E Minor is an online publication of inspiring art, illustration, photography, music, fashion, film, and more, featuring our latest discoveries in the ever-changing world of contemporary pop culture."

Ilana Kohn wrote the nicest things about me:

"Walking into the SVA Illustration Graduate show a few months back, the work of Anna Raff was one of the first things to catch my eye. A huge wall was decked out with the most impossibly charming watercolor creatures of every shape, size and color. Pink nosed mice stealing away with cheese, smiling alligators toting purses."

Not a bad way to start my day!

darwinian democracy: survival of the loudest

I don't know about you, but I've been extremely disturbed by the health reform shout-downs at town hall meetings by right-wingers around the country in recent days. Whoever has the bigger megaphone seems to be getting all the attention.

extreme secrecy

Shhh...This fall, my work will be featured on one of those home makeover TV shows. I spent the better part of last week on this pro bono project, creating a mural image, and a bunch of animal faces (seen here) that will be in a child's room. Photos of the room and the actual air date are still to come. But when you watch it, don't blink. Not being that familiar with the show, I hear that they don't linger too much in the kids' rooms. All for a good cause— well—causes: theirs and mine. Here's hoping the schmaltz factor is minimal.
