In 2006 I self-published my first book, Sleepyheads. It was a book of simple drawings of people with their eyes closed that I had encountered on the subway, while making my way from Brooklyn into Manhattan for work every morning. I made one hundred copies. I sold some, gave some away, and ended up printing another hundred. They’re all gone now, as well as the four other books that I’ve put out since.
Now, thanks to the miracles of technology, I can make these out-of-print books available as downloadable PDFs. So, I did. I’m very excited to share that you can now get yourself fresh digital copies of all six of my books over at my site. I know that they won’t have that smell of printed ink, but hopefully they’ll still make you think or… better yet, smile.
Way back in 2009 I published a small book as a part of a solo show I had at Rare Device in San Francisco. Everything You Need Can Grow takes its title from from Teenage Fanclub’s “Stars & Planets” and illustrates the end of a long, lonely and cold winter. At the show, the book sat along aside the thirty-eight original watercolors used to illustrate the story.
Yesterday, I happened to notice the last few copies sitting on my shelf and I realized that I had never truly shared the story online. So, why not now?
I have added the book in its entirety to my website, here. I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to send me your reviews and critiques.
And, here is a little experiment where I tried to set the books images to Mojave 3′s “Bluebird of Happiness”. I thought the song (a personal favorite) just fit and wanted to see how it flowed. I like how it turned out although I wish I could REALLY animate it.
