writing for Wired

July 17th, 2008

distorted Waikiki

Well this is different. In a certain career move that has nothing at all to do with childrens books or illustration I was asked to write a small piece for Wired.com’s how-to wiki. Michael Calore, the section’s editor, asked me to explain how I got my iPhone to take these twisty distorted photos that I have on my Flickr page.
And just so everyone knows, I’m also available to write articles on getting the most out of pocket calculators and electric pencil sharpeners.

Here’s the link.

my tan hurts

April 9th, 2008

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.
