A Big Day for Me

My first published children's book, Asiago is now on pre-sale through Amazon.com. View it here! It's a really strange and wonderful feeling-- I began working on the book in September 2009, and here we are at year's end in 2011 and it's available on Amazon.

Here's the first drawing I ever did off Asiago, before he was tailored to fit a children's story and he was just a little guy wearing and old-fashioned bathing suit living in my notebook:

And here's where we ended up:
To everyone who's been following along with The Daily Graphite this past year and a half: thanks so much for sticking with me. This project means a lot to me and I look forward to sharing more and more art as we venture into 2012.

The Back of the Book!

Slowly but surely, I'm putting up more and more drawings from my first published book, "Asiago." It will be available this coming spring. Really quite a trip for me; if you go back to some of my first posts, you'll see that I began sketching for it over a year ago. Now I'm eagerly anticipating the finished and printed book to hit shelves.
