Just got back a picture of my work that was in the Color of Comics exhibition at the Miami Book Fair.
(In this picture, my work from Pigling is shown in black and white. A similar story by another artist is in the center.)
This show was curated by Alex Simmons and will be up at their gallery until Jan 15, 2010.

We all met at the Japanese Gardens. What a great day and the weather...perfect! Our group started with 4 and then later we found 4 more sketchers that joined the group.
I am very inspired by everyone. Check out the rest of the sketches at Portland Sketchcrawl.

About a year ago, I was commissioned to illustrate two short stories in two books edited by Paul Buhle.
One book was based on the lives of The Beat generation ans the other was based on the interviews of Stud's Terkel's Working.
I just got a copy of the Best Seller's list. The Beats: A Graphic History came up #3 and Working is listed as #12.
