As promised...

Here is the illustration I finished before we left on vacation, for Nicholas Blechman at the New York Times Book Review. It was for a review of Once Upon a River by Bonnie Jo Campbell. Illustrating book reviews are always a fun challenge. This one involved listening to lots of Neil Young, which wasn't a challenge at all. "Down by the River" seemed especially appropriate.

Thank you, Nicholas! Also coming soon... another piece for the Book Review (which involved listening to some Thelonious Monk)!

Back to work...

We got back in town late last night and I already miss coughing up salt water, untangling the kelp from around my arms, and scrubbing the tar off my feet (see previous post). Oh well. Time to get back to personal projects, side projects, and work for an upcoming group show at the Black Cloud Workshop here in Denver. NY Times Book Review post coming soon... I promise.

Gone fishin'...

Well, I won't actually be fishing, but I am going on vacation with my family for the next week. Anybody wanting to talk about illustration projects can call or email me, however, I can't promise I'll be able to return your call/email in a timely fashion. And I won't be able to take on any projects until I get back. I plan on spending as many of my waking hours as I can being pummeled by the waves of the Pacific Ocean. Otherwise, I'll be back in the office July 18th, and with a post on the NY Times Book Review illustration I finished a few days ago. The illustration will be in this Sunday, or next Sunday's Book Review section. Check it out!
Update: The Book Review illo (along with the posting) will be out next week, I think.
