I’m excited to share that I will be at Disneyland a few times in July! Catch me at Wonderground Gallery where they will release 2 new Disney prints, Disney California Adventure where I will perform live wood burning demonstrations or on July 21st for the Pixar Artist Showcase. My artwork will be featured at both Wonderground Gallery and Rushin’ River Outfitters in California Adventure for the month of July.

Meanwhile I will be presenting about PASHMINA and doing a mini presentation tomorrow the Turn the Page event at Fairyland in Oakland with a whole lot of amazing children’s book authors.

Whew! That’s a lot of events – hope to catch you at one!

schulz museum tomorrow

Seven years ago I made this drawing for my mother-in-law. She loves Peanuts and Snoopy.

So I’m extra excited that tomorrow I will be featured at the Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa. If you’re in the area, please come by. I will be signing books and talking about my comics process.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
