Go to Princeton!

July 14th, 2017

I first attended the Princeton Children’s Book Festival about three or four years ago and thought it was just terrific. Four big tents full of people reading, writing, illustrating, and especially buying books. I was set up next to Jon Scieszka where we were writing our names in copies of Frank Einstein, and I’ve been back each year since.
I was especially pleased when they asked me to make the poster for this year’s festival, which will be on September 23. I’d seen the posters that Peter Brown, Dan Yaccarino, and Greg Pizzoli made, and figured I better work hard on this one.

So… it’s time to reveal this thing. I’m also posting a few sketches from the process that led to the final design. Please enjoy thanks, and I hope to see you on September 23 in Princeton, NJ. Thanks to Susan Conlon, Caroline Quinones, and Tim Quinn for the opportunity and the help throughout the process.

reading at the Library Festival

April 17th, 2009

This weekend is the Free Library Festival at the Philadelphia Central Library. It takes place on Saturday and Sunday April 18 and 19 at 19th street at Vine. I’ll be appearing (sounds like a magic act) in the Target Tent at 2pm on Sunday. The idea is that I’ll be reading from the Judy Sierra book I illustrated Beastly Rhymes. It’s a fun book to read aloud. They also tell me I’ll read something else too.
There is a lot of other things to do at the library as well. Please come out and say hello and have a good time. The weather will be nice! Yes!
