Check out this book published by 826Michigan and featuring the work of top notch illustrators (Jon Klassen, Greg Pizzoli, Adam Rex, Dan Santat, Lisa Brown, so many more) providing art for short stories by student writers. Buy the book! Support 826 and writing programs for kids! Here's my illustration for "You're Fired, Alex!" by 14 year old Isaac Cochran.
Poa Cafe in Portland will be displaying original illustrations from Home through the month of August. I love this place: it's bright and pretty with good food and play areas for kids which include a reading nook and a little children's book library. I'll be signing copies of Home there on Saturday, August 1st from 3:00-6:00. I think they'll be for sale at the cafe? Pretty sure? Anyway, come by and say hi.
And on a related note, Nationale still has some very limited edition prints of selected illustrations from the book. Drop them a line for more info.
Thanks for the nice video, WeMake people.
Speaking of Yvonne and WeMake, I did a sketchXchange with them at Tillamook Station last month. I shared process work and sketchbooks with an audience, answered questions, and drank beer. It was a good time. Go here for a recap of the event and an interview I did with Britt Appleton from WeMake.
