I illustrated the liner notes for the Light in the Attic reissue of the Serge Gainsbourg album Histoire De Melody Nelson.
I also illustrated and signed and numbered 100 limited edition posters which you can buy from Light in the Attic. The album got a 10 at Pitchfork and this website seems to be excited about both the album and the poster.

Inspired by the book Tattoo by Albert Parry © 1930. I found the book at the Olympia Goodwill. Excerpt featuring Professor Jack:
"It is useless to make a trip to New York's South Street. There the tattooing pursuit is as dead as the two other ancient trades of that street: the making and selling of sails, and the carving of ships' figureheads. Professor Jack was the last permanent artist in this section; no one knows where he is now." (p. 54)
