Wow, I haven't posted anything since before Thanksgiving, but I am up to lots of mischief. I had this thought about lumberjacks, and wanted to do a weeping lumberjack or something along that line. But then again, why not a Beaverjack? He's a little oblivious while raining on everyone's parade.

On newsstands now: Four of my journal pages featuring dogs are featured in a spread in the Winter issue of The Bark. I love this magazine, it's the cool dog mag. Thanks to Cameron Woo!

An abstract collage in which I mash together various bits and pieces, then try to make sense of the result. I was instructed in my class to do this piece, so I happily armed myself with scissors and glue. It's 12 x 12 on plywood. Having not done an abstract in a while, and being a huge fan of vintage ephemera, the project was really quite enjoyable.

For my first November post, a project I'm doing for a class with Lilla Rogers, an artist's rep and illustrator who I worked with during my years as an art director. She runs an excellent school that focuses on creating art that can be licensed, an area I've been a bit fuzzy on. This is the project I particularly took the class for: children's picture books. We're doing a page for the well-known Aesop's fable. Hard to work on this without thinking of the Bugs Bunny version... or the beautiful 1934 Disney short. I'm going to wait to re-watch them until I'm done, otherwise I might be too easily influenced!

And here's the final piece.

Ah, the road trips to Grandma's and to Skyline Drive. The boys fighting in the back, watching the landscape fly by while trying to fight off car sickness. Grandma had a game: "Higgledy-piggledy buttercup, how many fingers do I hold up?" and I can still recall the touch of her hand against my back while I was trying to guess how many.

For the November issue of Vegetarian Times, I did this piece for the feature celebrating their 40th anniversary. Thanks to Creative Director Daphna Shalev.
