Young Jane Goodall

For Primates, I created 60 little 3"x4" watercolor paintings for promotion of the book, and I'll be posting them here on the blog.  Here's a young Jane Goodall!  Happy Friday!

Happy Birthday, Dian Fossey!

Today would have been Dian Fossey's 81st  birthday!  She studied gorilla groups in the forests of Rwanda for 18 years; you can read more about her here. (And when Primates comes out!)

Happy New Year (a little belated, I know)!

2013 is going to chock full of new and art and doodles...First up: Primates!

Yup, it's the project I've been working on for the past 4 years...written by the amazing Jim Ottaviani, published by the also-amazing First Second Books.  Here's a profile page for the book, and you can pre-order on Amazon.  The official release for Primates is June 11 2013, and I've got a whole lot of fun stuff to post about it.

Oh, and in case you didn't notice, I spruced up the blog with some foliage (and a chimp).
