Going my way?

I love the Wizard of Oz books. The movie is classic, but for me the books will always win. John R. Neill's pen and ink illustrations made such an impression on me when I was a kid. I might even bust out some Glinda the Good and Ozma!

Drawing Inspiration: Visual Artists at Work

A few weeks ago I got my copy of Drawing Inspiration: Visual Artists at Work, and it is really terrific. The project started off quite a few years back when I was still in school - me and whiz-bang Sheridan Illustration instructor and pro illustrator Rick Sealock got approached to be contributors by Michael Fleishman. After numerous back and forths and revisions and a bit of waiting, it's now out and available on Amazon!

Congratulations to Mike for his perseverance and passion.
