I have never felt as much on the move in my life as I do now. Ironically, I won't be traveling as much this year (though I have a thrilling trip to northern Norway planned for this coming December, about which more later)... the journeys I refer to are interior, surprising, and profound.
Some of the products of my interior travels will be apparent before too long. At least, I hope so, since many of them are a response to my September art show deadline!
Back in the visible world, I appear on the pages of a couple of magazines, with more such appearances to follow this year.

It's called 'The Pulse of the City; Seven Artists from Around the Globe Share What it Means to Record Life ... .' Cathy (or Kate, as her artist friends call her) has written 34 books and zillions of articles. She's a national treasure. I'm honored to be one of the seven artists she writes about:
I am also a contributing illustrator to a magazine called Walter; Raleigh's Life and Soul, as you may remember from a recent post here.

Luckily, the map in question was small and could be done in my sketchy, quirky style! I can't wait to do more maps! If ever a subject were tailor-made for me, the wandering artist, this is it.
