kids book in progress, and American Illustration

NOVEMBER 9, 2012
In case you didn’t know, this week is a Mayor Bloomberg approved official Illustration Week in New York. One of the biggest event of the week is tonight's American Illustration and American Photography Annual publishing party (in a beautiful old synagog in Lower East Side!)
I have five images accepted  into this year’s annual, among them four are from first children’s book I have illustrated, which is due out in spring 2013.
Barbed Wire Baseball was written by Marissa Moss (published by Abrams, AD: Chad Beckerman).  As you may be able to guess, it is a story takes place in wartime Japanese internment camp. It is a story of endurance and hope.
It was a tremendous amount of work to get full book done. I am so happy that they got accepted into the Annual.
You can see all the images from this year’s American Illustration 31 Annual here.
And, another one is this DC Comics cover I illustrate monthly for The Unwritten. This issue's story was about an aging superhero and a talking stuffed rabbit, and the end of the world.
