The Traveling Forest To Be…
The Traveling Forest, as many of my close friends & family know is an idea that I have been carrying around with me for some time. It makes me happy and brings me back to my boyhood dreaming along the ocean shore. The Traveling Forest, is more of a meditation then a children’s book. I like to think that it is a book for people of all ages. There are no words in this book just images. Day & Night a drift. The idea is that a Forest is growing on a vessel that is being carried by the Sea. Simple right…Simple & Beautiful the way I like it. Here are five proposed images for the book. I would love for the Book to be about fifty pages. The last image is a study of the growth of the Forest. I will be sending the book out to publishers this week to see if we get a bite. I know the process is long but keep us in your thoughts. Big LOVE my friends!

Museum Show Coming Up!!!
Axle Contemporary’s ” Renga Project “, poets write artists draw. Read more about it by clicking on the link.
I was to illustrate the stanza :
fallen petals — leaves of light —
dissolve, barefoot becoming
It was my honor to be selected to illustrate the work of Will Barnes (above). The top image is what will be on display at The Museum of Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I must say I am rather happy with it. The bottom image was my first attempt to translate the writing in to an image which proved to be more of a visual brain storm. On a personal note, it was a hard time in my life with the loss of my beautiful brother Mario as well as moving away from New Mexico. But as Dan Eldon said, ” The journey is the destination”. Love you New Mexico. Thanks for all you have given me.
