I've been spending the last week, more or less, going through a lot of file boxes full of old papers. I found this "mini poster" that I painted in day-glow paints back in High School, probably in 1973 or thereabouts. I really liked it, so I started to reproduce it in Adobe Illustrator.

It will be a T-shirt option on one of the print-on-demand sites within the next 48 hours. And maybe some other options as well, as I really like it and I think you will, too. I might do some more versions with different or more animals on it. I think one with bears, at least. Stay tuned.

The Sketchbook Project 2013 - Part 1

I participated in the Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project again this year, and I just put the book in the mail. This is the second time I've  participated in this. Here is a link to my 2011 sketchbook.

The current sketchbook, I'd like to think, anyway, is better than the first one - there are a few really good pieces in there and I gave it slightly more thought than the first one, but this one was really rushed at the end as well. I thought for most of the fall that the start of the tour in March was the deadline, so I was surprised last month with the January 15th postmark deadline. The book will be digitized, but that will take a while. In the meantime, I've scanned it myself before shipping it out, and I'll post some teaser pictures here of some of my favorite pages.
