Here's the Cherios box with "Great Dog Wash" inside...

I've been working away on Wow! Ocean! these last few weeks. The family and I are going to Costa Rica for a much needed vacation/surf trip/jungle adventure in June, so I'll get a little research in. I'm getting lots of great feedback from "The Great Dog Wash" Cheerios project- seems like with a million and a half out there everyone who eats breakfast got one! Thanks. Here are some of the pencil sketches for Wow! Ocean! And, because the vertical format goes so well on the web, a drawing I did this morning for New Jersey Monthly as well... R.

The Great Dog Wash Cherios campaign!

'The Great Dog Wash: by Shelly Breaner, and me, is out in one and a half million cheerios boxes. See this link... and this one, and here's the google...

This was fun to do, but what really drew me to the project was the wonderful Cheerios reading program and the "gasp" press run. The full size version will be in bookstores this summer. Eat your Cheerios! R.

I'm posting three editorial drawings this morning! The first is about buying houses... the second is a magazine illustration (Business Week) about corporations real stand on healthcare (nationalize it, yesterday...) and the third is how ordinary people will torture if authority asks them to. Fun.

Just returned from N.Y.C. We placed "Too Many Monsters" with Little Simon, of Simon & Shuster. It's a board book, about a little kid who has too many monsters in his room. They keep popping up, and he tries to stuff them in closets, etc....
In the meantime, my author on "Two Dogs," John Lithgow, has been up to nice things here.

New York was grey and a bit sad with the recession. I've seen it before. I graduated from Parsons in'75, the year Jerry Ford (bless his heart anyway) told NYC to drop dead. The food was spectacular.
