I don't, really. But wondering how many will comment, asking me if I do.
Done entirely in Photoshop. Realizing that I need to work more off-the-cuff, on-the-spot, so I don't rely too much on the scanner.
Okay, the big news: I just finished my very first children's book! Worked on it throughout November and December, all the way up to last Monday. It's done. Finally. Well, actually, there might be a revision or two. But basically, it's done! And it'll be published by Simon & Schuster, this June. Sometimes I can't believe all the opportunities that I've been blessed with lately. Sometimes I don't really feel like I'm worth it. Especially after the rude awakening of last year. But honestly, I think it's been the best thing for me, career-wise. Letting go can be either a curse or a blessing, it's all in the matter of how you deal with it. Happy to report that my situation has been a blessing. Been wanting to write more on all this, but need a little bit more time to let it all sink in.
About the book: it's not officially announced yet, but once I get word, I'll post it here. One thing I have to say: it was a LOT of fun. Plus, I was stretched and pulled in ways that was both scary & invigorating for me. I learned a lot about the business, as well as about me, and how I work, my methods. I'm more comfortable with my illustration work now, that's for sure. Anyway, more to come later.
"b-boy" news: If you missed my "b-boy" show at the Grassy Knoll last fall, you can see some of the paintings hanging up now in the lobby of Mosaic Church in the Hollywood district of Portland. It's not the entire show, but lots of the good stuff. Call and ask to come by to check it out if you'd like--they'll have it up for the month of February.
Gotta love the fact that there's breakdancing in a church. Makes me smile just thinking of it.
One last thing: I tweet. Okay, that is all.
