the news section

By "news" of course, we mean that which is new. Information, projects, ideas, that sort of thing. Maybe sometimes now and then you might find the "recent" and occasionally something quite "old" might find its way on to these pages. Possibly it could be in the form of an illustration, or perhaps I"m just behind the curve in some way. Enjoy.

I just returned from a two-week hiatus from the studio. It was hard work, but I had to go to Hawaii for eleven days. Sacha and I spent six days in Oahu and five in Kauai. I’ve traveled a lot, with museums and culture and learning and whatnot, but I think this is the first real vacation I’ve taken as an adult. I drew maybe one sketch in my notebook, so it was a true vacation from work as well. Instead, I spent my time driving around the islands with Sacha, cooking seafood on the bbq grill, practicing my new ukuleles, and taking pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Here are some. You can find more on my Flickr page.

Now I’m back in the studio, in Philadelphia, and facing a daunting schedule that includes several children’s books and a number of other illustration projects. Stay tuned here for all that. Aloha.
