...and a Happy New Year!

A Happy and Healthy New Year to All! I resolve that I won't use the Monsters again after this, but they looked like they were having such a good time at Christmas that they should continue partying into the new year! (plus, I've been to busy to do anything new, more on that later)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone! It's been a great year and it's going out with a very busy bang! I'm about to select the winner of the second Monster Sculpt contest, check out the winner shortly here: I'll also be announcing a new contest soon.

I've been so busy lately, I have not sent out all of the printed christmas cards I have wanted to send. If you have not received one, and want one. send me an email with your address and I'll put one in the mail. ( I apologize if you feel slighted, I just haven't had time to look up everyone's address) I hope I have time to put together a New Year's image also. Wow, so much to do, so little time!

Cool News!

I found out some really cool news this past week;

• A week ago I found out that “I’m Looking For A Monster!” is on a “Best Books of 2008” from Building Readers, a national newsletter for teachers, pre-schools, libraries and other educational institutions.

• My editors at Random House informed me on Friday that I have won an “Excellence in Book Production and Design” award from the Bookbinder’s Guild of New York. My book will be featured at the New York Book Show in March.

I also found out that my friend Bob Eckstein's Book "The History of the Snowman" is getting great attention. Find out more here.

'Nother Kid

Here's another design for a revision of a book I've been working on. I'm trying for a looser style.
Come see me this Saturday at 2pm at the Dorchester Public Library.

I also want to thank Bob Eckstein for plugging my book on his blog, Freelancer's Lament Check out Bob's Book, History Of The Snowman.
