The Last Runaway





A recent book jacket for Tracy Chevalier's "The Last Runaway" published by penguin books and art directed by Monica Benalcazar.  It was exciting to see how this turned out in print, especially since I got the chance to do some hand lettering!

another new studio



We moved again! Conveniently down one floor from our previous apartment, into a great new space. I'm most excited about my studio, with is so much bigger and brighter than what I had before.

new books





I've acquired some new art books lately, and these two are my favorites of the bunch.  Whenever I feel stuck in a rut, I take a look at the artwork I love and get the jolt of inspiration I need, (which is usually nothing more than being in a state of dumbfounded awe over something I think is beautiful).
