My art on Breaking Bad!

Over the years I've done a lot of work for the Weekly Alibi, which happens to be based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. January 2011 I did a cover for them, the only cover I did for them that year. January 2011 is when season four, episode 1 of Breaking Bad was filming! Talk about the right place at the right time.

The episode aired in July 2011 -- more than a year ago and I only watched it now!

In the last shot of the episode, the camera lingers for a few glorious seconds on this:

Eeeeeeee! EeeeEEE! What's even cooler is that as you can see from cover I posted, the headline was "The 2011 Issue". In the shot it says "20th". So they even had to do some post-production magic there! And even, even cooler is that in the next few episodes they do "previously on..." montages that include the same shot. 

And nerdiest of all, I can now daydream that I'm a freelance illustrator in the Breaking Bad universe. Like, if I travelled to Albuquerque I could conceivably run into Walt or Jesse or good ol' Saul :P.
