Chris Buzelli’s Fanciful Landscapes & Futurescapes for The New York Times

For the last few Sundays, A/A artist Chris Buzelli’s luminous illustrated work has appeared in the pages of The New York Times. The Sunday edition of the Times is the most widely circulating newspaper in the US, offering over 2.3 million readers the opportunity to witness Chris’s astounding creative range.

 

Working closely with one of the art directors at the Times, Corinne Myller, Chris produced two pieces for the travel section. First, a sweeping landscape illustration appeared on August 25th alongside a personal essay about a gay man’s apprehensive return to his childhood home in Montana.

 

Then, on September 15th, Chris had the honor of illustrating the entire front cover of the travel section. Only very rarely has a full page been devoted to a single artist’s work. For the section’s Latin America issue, Chris takes viewers on a trek down the Amazon. Inspired by an article about the hidden mysteries of the river as it courses through Peru, Chris writes, “Some of my favorite art is by early explorers discovering a new location or animal for the first time and depicting it in their own way——a mix of past memories and a fleeting glimpse of the present. I wanted to capture a bit of that.”

 

Just a week before, on September 8th, Chris’s work accompanied a review of celebrated author Margaret Atwood’s new book, MaddAddam, in the venerable New York Times Book Review. Atwood’s eagerly awaited futuristic dystopian tale——or as Chris summarizes it, “a battle for the future of humanity in a garden full of bioengineered child-like creatures, green glowing rabbits, vultures and half-lion half-lamb called ‘liobambs.’” Chris is no stranger to illustrating fanciful worlds and creatures, real or imagined, making him an ideal choice. We’ll let Pamela Paul, editor of the Times Book Review have the last word on the superb results. She tweeted a link to the image and declared that she’s, “Mad about this gorgeous illustration.”
