On my way to the World Fantasy Convention 2015 in New York through next week.

I’m a special guest, curating an exhibition of artist Richard Powers paintings, along with panels, special displays and online features.

Powers was a giant of 20th century illustration, changing the way books were designed and presented.

Below is the cover of a small book I edited and designed just for the conference.

A honeymoon cut short, two stars from different
constellations romance the sky.

A fierce grackle in flight. A little angry, but they always look angry.

The Fort Wayne Museum of Art is celebrating SWEEP UP THE SUN
with a pop-up exhibit of Rick’s photography from the book,
a meet and greet with both Rick & Helen, and a book signing.

Looking forward to meeting everyone able to stop by.

A really fine, thoughtful review of my latest book with Helen Frost,
Sweep Up the Sun, in the New York Times Sunday Book Review.

“…beautiful in an unabashedly artistic way.
These photographs are as gorgeous as paintings.”
