My art book, GOLDEN DREAMS, is off to the printer!
After over two months of work by myself, Michael Nelson the cover designer, and production by Judy Gonyeau, my 224-page art book is finally at the printer in Texas. I am more nervous about this than about any other project, as I am solely responsible for the end product. I am so grateful for finding about about Kickstarter, which I used to fund the printing costs.
Below are some sample spreads from the book, and the cover design. I was thrilled to get blurbs for the back cover from noted illustrators Paul Zelinsky and Charles Vess, and a lovely quote from the chief curator of the Norman Rockwell Museum, where I have an upcoming solo show from Dec 7, 2013-Mar 9, 2014.
MOVING TO WORDPRESS
I am moving my website to WordPress next month, and the home page news will become a blog format, where folks are welcome to leave comments. I will be moving to a Mailchimp Newsletter service as well, as I understand it is not a good idea to send these things from a personal email account. Getting with the times. Just a bit. I have started a Pinterest account, and plan to make some boards. A bit of Twittering.
ART BOOK NEWS
Working madly this month on the art book. Below is a spread, with pictures from Sleeping Beauty, out of print since 1990.
