Wild Thang

I recently found Terrible Yellow Eyes, a collection of works inspired by the beloved classic, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. It's my hope to submit an illustration to Cory Godbey, the sites' administrator in hopes of joining the gallery. Here's the first half of the sketch so far, and I'll be posting the finished product soon.

Here's the finished image. Why a big hairy brute daintily admiring a flower? No idea. Nothing prompted it it whatsoever. Nothing. Nope, not a thi- ... okay fine, I'm shamelessly trying to get into Toon Club's weekly topic based cartooning/sketch club. Their topics are great and it's a great reason to draw.

Hope everybody had a great holiday weekend.

Springtime Progression

Here's a little sample of the process I used to create an image of a hulking terror stopping to smell the flowers.

Eden Wild Reading Room Visit

C.H.I.L.D., Inc., a Verona non-profit organization, will be sponsoring my visit to the Eden Wild Outdoor Reading Room located in the children’s garden in Verona Park on Sunday, May 31, 2009 from 2-4 p.m.

The first 15 children to arrive will receive a free autographed book from Ed Shankman and I. Ed will be reading to the children from “I Met a Moose in Maine One Day” and “The Boston Balloonies” and I'll be drawing with the kids in the garden.

In the event of rain, the event will be held indoors at the Verona Park Boathouse. Watchung Booksellers from Montclair will be on hand to sell additional books.
