I‘ve been working on this poster for quite a bit of time now. It’s for a library’s summer reading program and author/illustrator events. I’m posting it at 90% finished because I wanted to see how it looks on screen and to add in some text.

These are a few oil paintings I had sitting around. I’ll post many more in the near future–I just dislike sitting around scanning paintings. I am obsessed with little, red birds and have been for a few months. I can’t recall what sparked this obsession but it does very much exist and it has made its way into many works.

Had a book signing at Wonderland Books in Putnam, CT this afternoon. Small turnout–but the day was nice. Erica, Mom, Mem’ere, Carl and Tiff were the posse. Did this sketch while I sat and signed.
