On the Summer Drawing Board...

Up to the usual no-good this summer... creating contemporary adaptations of AESOP'S FABLES for an upcoming volume of The Graphic Canon... here's a taste of the work in progress...

 In addition to the obscure THE LION IN LOVE, I'm retelling the sour tale of THE FOX AND THE GRAPES Tabloid-style, and THE CITY MOUSE AND THE COUNTRY MOUSE against the unlikely backdrop of the Russian Mafia.
 For Eureka's Graphic Classics, I'm having a ball illustrating Joe R. Lansdale's scary DOG, CAT, and BABY, about a homicidal housecat. How great to be adapting a living author for a change!

 I finally got the go-ahead for my graphic biography of the genius THELONIUS MONK, written by David Berger and published by Duke University Press. it'll run between 120-140 pages, and here's another taste to whet the whistle.

There's plenty more to tell, but I'll leave it at that, for now... have a great summer!
