You might noticed I just finished up fine-tuning my "new look blog" with a brand new banner up above. I found the size of the last one didn't fit so I thought I'd create a brand new one with a favorite image of the Detective Inspector from The Spaghetti Strand Murder.
Well, after a fairly slow first week of 2012 which consisted of putting a few finishing touches on a couple commissioned pieces as well as one of my comics appearing in the now yearly End of the Year Comic Issue of Worcester Magazine (pick it up at your local newsstand or read it online), things will start hotting up again next week with my regular classes coming back from break as well as my December Workshops starting up again at the at the Worcester Art Museum.
I also have a few projects that are either coming out or in the works.
One of which I have mentioned before is The Ninnies by Paul Magrs. Which I have been told by Obverse Books should be coming out early in the year.
This is a project I am very proud to have been a part of since Paul is a writer whose work I have greatly admired for some time now. So, to be able to do a story with him in the grand tradition of Roald Dahl and the Phantom Tollbooth is a great privilege for me.
To be honest, I think is probably my best work to date. Or at least work I have been thoroughly happy with it's results.
More new about the project will be announced on Obverse Books website at: http://obversebooks.co.uk/
There will be a formal announcement on this blog when the book is released.
The second is another children's book I am working on with author N.E. Castle who I had done several author signings at Borders in the past couple of years. I can't really say much about this particular project yet. But it's going to be a lot of fun to do.
More to come about that later.
