The Duchess gets a Nod

It looks like our book, The Duchess of Whimsy has been named as a finalist for the Library of Virginia's Whitney and Scott Cardozo Award for Children's Literature. The Cardozo Award recognizes excellence in children's literature published in the previous year. The winner is determined by votes cast and I would be remiss if I didn’t put it out there and use this platform to try and crush the competition. If you did genuinely like the Duchess and feel inclined to vote, please proceed here and thanks, from both Randall and me!

I know what you must be thinking...

Doesn't he actually draw anymore?
I do. Really. But as I've said before, most of the work I am doing lately is on films that won't be released for awhile.
In the meantime, I am once again going to do a signing of my book, A Sketchy Past and what better place to do it than at the black hole that is San Diego ComicCon, which begins today. Surprisingly, even to me, I have had only one other signing in the U.S. for A Sketchy Past. I am in discussion with my publisher, Akileos, about whether to print another edition of the hardcover or go on to produce a paperbound edition. If that is the case, the hardcover edition might soon become extinct, though I don't like the idea. So if you haven't got a copy yet, I will be perched as usual at Stuart Ng's table where I will be signing two or three times throughout the weekend. I'll also be selling some original drawings and even a few high quality prints of my work (see the 11X14 print above), just to test the water.
See you there?

PS: I just installed a snappy new flipbook preview of A Sketchy Past in the "store"section of my website-
