52at52 started out as a year-long self-portrait project but has morphed into an illustrated memoir of thwarted love. In other words, just another way for me to expose myself! If you’ve ever loved someone hard, you may find something that resonates. Pop over and have a look: 52at52
52at52 will remain the working title for the time being until I decide on a name more appropriate to the content. I plan to regenerate the 52 weeks of self-portraits project on my 52nd birthday in May. I’ll keep you posted.
“A chirping chorus wakens Annie” – a full color illo from part three of Douglas has a Dilemma. You can read some of parts one and two here and here.
Douglas has a Dilemma, my illustrated love story for adults, has grown since its inception in the summer of 2009. Two years ago I was fortunate to be signed by a great lit agent. Since then, with her guidance, I’ve been rewriting, editing and sketching to prepare my small book for submission to publishing houses. This illo is one of the final (I hope!) steps.

My short illustrated story for adults, Douglas has a Dilemma, has evolved since it was first conceived of as an entry into the 2009 McKinney Avenue Contemporary’s (the MAC) annual membership show. I’ll write more about that later but for now I just want to introduce a bit more of Douglas’s story. It’s been on the back burner – and sometimes the front burner, but on simmer – for quite a while. But isn’t that the way it often is with complicated love stories? You can read the first part of his story here and the first part of the second part (! I know!) here.
