I created these bright and colorful NYC themed travel journals a few months back for Mudpuppy and they're out just in time for Summer! BIG THANK YOU to Cynthia, for the great direction and all the fun work - such a cool idea for younger travelers and those young at heart alike. Both are available for pre-order on amazon,hereandhere.
I drew this little guy on the paper tablecloth at Macaroni Grill the other day. I liked something about him and wanted to share here. He's like a cross between Charlie Brown and a little urchin from Gangs of New York. Maybe I'll make him into my mischievous alter-ego. No names for the guy yet... I'm open to any suggestions.

I get asked if I still do any freelance work for American Greetings? I do, in fact I enjoy the work very much. Here is a recent and simple card out on racks now, it's one of my personal favs. I hope drunken Uncles everywhere, get a little kick out of it. : )
My illustration in today's NY Times regarding the uncertain and often gloomy long term real estate outlook. I wish we had better news to illustrate, still I'm grateful for the opportunity to work again with Art Director, Minh Uong. Thanks again! Check out the article here.

Family and friends can probably attest, these quirky characters and books were my life, last Summer. I'm so happy with how they came together and excited to share with you today! Big thank you to Ashlee at Capstone, it was a true and fun collaboration, and I look forward to working together again soon. As I posted before, each of the stories center around an (easy-to-fold) Origami character, and offer young readers a fun glimpse into the every day science all around us. I recently learned that we will be doing four more books, so there's more to come down the road!
I wanted to share the latest amazing work from the gifted children at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy. Don Masse's kindergarten class recently created collages inspired from the leaves and branches in my illustration above. It's such a fun idea, you can tell the kids are having a blast. I wish I could have been there. He then assembled the children's pieces into the charming panorama below. Check out all the beautiful work and more at shine brite zamorano.
