The life of a blogger is one of solitary persistence and a burning curiosity to explore an area of affection. Small clusters of communities naturally form around common interests. And though readership can be high (Spy Vibe has passed a half-million visitors), it is rare that we get a chance to cross over to the mainstream circulation of major publications. Peter Lorenz, creator of our fellow C.O.B.R.A.S. site, Illustrated 007, crossed over to the big-time today with a commissioned illustration for an article about Ian Fleming in The Sunday Times Magazine. Congratulations to Peter! You can read about Peter's Bond collection and see more of his illustrations in his chapter of our series, For Your Shelf Only.
