Here There Be Gnomes!

Six years in the making, Gnomes of the Cheese Forest and Other Poems is finally here!


It's been a whirlwind couple of months, going through a few proofs and such, but I've finally flicked on the switch and the book is now available to order online at: 


Jars full of gratitude to everyone who has stood by me and lent their steadfast support and encouragement!  

There is so much more I could say, and probably will soon....but for now, keep following my social media channels as the best place for random updates.

My Guest Artist

It's a TBT to the summer of 2014, almost mid-way through the many-year production of this book. My daughter Ariel was 7-years-old and went through a phase where she would always draw a butterfly in the right corner of all her drawings. This became the inspiration for one of the poems I wrote for the book, and Ariel got to contribute her own illustration as well.




Here is A Butterfly in the Right Corner, also narrated by Ariel (who is now 11), the subject of the final teaser trailer leading to book release.



The first physical proof is currently being shipped to me to ensure final approval. Stay tooned!

New Drawings are Happening

Time for an overdue update. I had some animation projects that kept me busy through the spring but in the last few weeks I've been getting back to the book and getting some new illustrations done.

Here's a few details.

The whip-poor-wills come for their jars...
