Cherine Badwi wrote a wonderful piece about the book in FFWD magazine. If you missed the paper version of it, you can check out the online version here.


In additional press news, I had an interview with Brenda Finley of CKUA for their Bookmarks program, which will be airing in April or May. More details on it once I know the exact date of broadcast. 




I haven't posted any of my artwork on the site yet, but lately I've been doing some exploration of what can be done with the vector illustration tools in Illustrator CS3. Here's a couple from an expirimental set, based around one of my wife's favorite typefaces, Clarendon Bold.

A big thanks to everyone who came out to the launch. It was a wonderful evening for me personally, made all the more rewarding by seeing so many people who have given me words of encouragement throughout this process. Also, thanks to McNally Robinson for hosting the event.
