Book Maker's Dozen
I’m happy to be part of a loose confederation of friends and illustrators here in Brooklyn operating under the moniker “Book Maker’s Dozen.” We are: Aileen Leijten, Boris Kulikov, Brett Helquist, Dan Yaccarino, David Gordon, John Bemelmans Marciano, John Rocco, Peter Brown, Sean Qualls, Selina Alko, Sergio Ruzzier, Sophie Blackall, and myself. You can know that we are a legitimate operation because we have a blog (here) and a Facebook page (here). You can go to the Facebook page, and “like” us, and everything.
This Thursday, December 2, we will transcend the virtual and touch the brick and mortar with a show, an opening, and some wine-fueled conversation about art and literature for young people, all at one of the great local and independent bookstores here in Brooklyn, powerHouse Arena. The powerHouse Arena is at 37 Main Street (corner of Water and Main Streets), in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. The opening will run from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M. Full event details are here.
At the opening we will also be selling signed limited-edition prints of our work. Just in time for the holidays, you might say! (More information on the prints is here. Interested parties in far-flung places can order prints through our Etsy page, here.)
I hope you can come by the reception, stop by to see the show, or just follow us online!
