Over the course of last summer, in a partnership with local small press print masters Pink Eye Print Company, I created my first art book "Birds Of Newfoundland". I think it's my most accessible and potentially successful work yet. The book is basically a collection of phantasmagorical illustrations of common birds of Newfoundland and Labrador with captions that start with an actual fact about them but then quickly become something else entirely. I am so proud of how well the final product came out. The cover is a TEN layer silkscreen on black Canson cotton paper with masterfully hand sewn and and bound interiors. It is such a beautiful thing to have in your hands. Jon and the folks at Pink Eye did a fantastic job in the production of this book, and my experience at the Pink Eye Print Christmas Expo was fantastic. To sell out all the available copies within three hours and sell more than half the run of the first edition throughout the rest of the day was an awesome life affirming experience. I think I made a properly nice gift for anyone in your life who likes birds, or Newfoundland, or psychedelia, so check it out and buy yourself a copy.
