Daily drawings and visual meanderings from wannabe illustrator, Adam McHeffey.

It's something I've been looking forward to for a long time. My first book, my brainchild, "Asiago," is finally on bookshelves. If you've been to The Daily Graphite before, you might know the young vampire pretty well already, but for those of you who don't...

Asiago is a vampire, and like all vampires, he avoids the sun, wood, and garlic. When his friends invite him to the beach, he is excited to go. But after getting a sunburn, a wooden splinter in his foot, and a stomachache from eating clams with garlic sauce, Asiago can't wait to get home. Luckily, his friends come up with a clever solution that makes it possible for Asiago to enjoy the beach. 

I used color pencils to create a vampire appealing enough that children will want to meet him again and again. Library Journal calls it a "funny and fresh introduction to one of the most vulnerable vampires ever depicted for a child audience." (April 2012) I hope that's a good thing haha.

In case your curiosity gets the best of you, you can order the book now on Amazon!
