Some Highlights from August 2018

This year I participated in the Sketchbook Project for the Brooklyn Art Library. If you’d like to see my sketchbook in person but don’t live in Brooklyn, the whole 2018 collection is going on tour.  It will be in ATLANTA September 21 – 23 at Ponce City Market 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30308.

Check out a digital copy of my sketchbook here.

It seems that the Brooklyn Art Library has also got itself a bookmobile. Upcoming Bookmobile Events: Check her out at:

Throw bread on me please
The oldest pieces you have
Let none go to waste

I’m currently reading Armed in Her Fashion by Kate Heartfield. A novel I was introduced to by this twitter thread. I’m not usually a fan of fantasy genre stuff but this book is very good and is about the kinds of characters that are usually in the background of fantasy genre, if mentioned at all. It’s about the kinds of characters I always want to know more about in other fantasy genre stories.
