I'm so excited to announce that a book of my drawings is being published and will be released in April. Yes, that's next month!
It's 144 pages, full colour, hard cover. It's being published by teNeues, the venerable art, architecture, and photography book publisher. Serious Drawings is how I've unofficially labeled my work for a while now, and seems like a pretty good title.
The introduction was written by the brilliant visual-arts writer Carolina Miranda, of C-Monster fame. From the book's dust jacket: "Carolina A. Miranda is a freelance writer based in Brooklyn, New York. She has contributed to Time, nytimes.com and ArtNews and is the author of the uncouth and saucy arts blog, C-Monster.net." Saucy indeed. I've been a fan of her blog and her writing style for a while now, so I was thrilled that she agreed to write the intro.
Publishing a book is a dream come true. I've always imagined my drawings in a book. I think it's the ideal format for my work, and I can't wait to do another.
