Hi Dave, Welcome to JF.
Laughing out loud because everyday is a bad hair day in Wyoming. Plus hair dresser's are far and few between. :) So, we just slap on a cowboy hat and a way we go. Your illustration's are delightful.

Hi Dave! Just thought I would drop a line to say hello. I hope things are going well. I am still working on the book I shared with you, and I am actually doing the illustrations myself. I wish you the best and great success this new year and hope to hear from you soon. Take Care.

Hi Dave.
Though working on a big UK Literacy project at the moment, I have also made a start on an 'Alice in Wonderland' like book. Over 100 illustrations (mono) are done as they flowed first. I started to evolve story from the images and launched a web site that explored the story within them,... more

Hey Dave, how cool and how coincidental is that? I emailed your brother Paul. Great musician! Life IS good!!! ZD
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 2/21/2009 at 8:48 PM:
Oh cool, That's really good. It's hard to get a book published with them. They generally publish just nature. Your book must be very good. :)
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 2/21/2009 at 8:28 PM:
Is Daydreams your own imprint? Dog-Eared Publications is almost in my backyard. I know they publish Nature books. What did you work on with them?
