An occupational hazard of working for HOW, I’ve found, is that the job puts me into the same orbit as a whole host of people who are far, far more talented and creative than I can ever in my life hope to be, which then makes me feel like a complete and utter fraud. Christoph Niemann is one of those far, far more talented creative people. I’ve never met him (would like to, though … maybe he’ll speak at a HOW Conference some day?). But his art is breathtaking. I always love his illustrated essays for NYTimes.com (Maira Kalman‘s, too). Today the site features Niemann’s illustrated forecast for 2010, Come Rain or Come Shine.
