Merry Christmas

I didn't have the time to make a full color Christmas card this year so I stuck with something simple and easy to reproduce on my home printer. The drawing is of my daughter Virginia.

Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators Interview

Good news! I was recently interviewed by Anni Matsick for the December issue of the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators newsletter. The interview focuses on the release of the Which Art Student Are You? book. This is just a screen pic below but you can read the full article here. The article is on pages 6 and 7.

Thanks to Anni and the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators for allowing a Philadelphian to join in the fun. I really do appreciate it.

Welcome to Paper Bag Town.

In the December issue of Highlights High Five I had the fun privilege of creating the aptly named Paper Bag Town. The feature was in the interior back cover. The idea is that children can create a small village by cutting out each part and attaching them to stuffed paper bags. I can't help but imagine all of the little boys that, after putting it all together, destroyed it like Godzilla. Virginia and I didn't get a chance to yet but we will. Winkity wink.

This was a lot of fun to work on especially since I got to play with my design skills for the store signs. Thanks, High Five!

Highlights High Five makes a swell gift for the little ones in your life. It does, it does, it does!
