THE 52 WEEKS PROJECT on KICKSTARTER!

Posted on April 27th, 2011 By Greg


We are attempting to fund the production of a collected hardcover volume of the first two years of the weekly drawing series, The 52 Weeks Project through Kickstarter! As many of you know this has been a long term passion project originally designed to avoid work, that in and of itself became a work all its own. My pal Ethan Hawke generously donated his time and wordpower to crafting a lovely introduction to the book, and all we need to do now is to find the funds to pay for the printing and shipping costs.

So please, pass along a link, facebook, tweet, blog… whatever your preferred medium so that others can help us bring this crazy thing to life at long last. While we’re very close to meeting our minimum funding requirements, it still doesn’t entirely cover most of the remaining expenses. So stop by and take a look by following the link below. Anything you can do to aid our attempts to do this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, and fingers crossed!

Our Enduring Spirit!

Posted on September 29th, 2009 By Greg

Today I’m very happy to announce the release of my latest children’s picture book, OUR ENDURING SPIRIT (published by Harper Collins)! Using the original text from President Obama’s first inaugural address I wanted to create a children’s book that could at once communicate the vitality and ideas of that day in pictures to children and act as a historical record and a snapshot of that day to the rest of us. As many of you know the opportunity to do this book came out of a series of drawings to benefit Habitat for Humanity during the weekly drawing series, The 52 Weeks Project. So in a wacky way this is an extension of the spirit of that strange endeavor.

You can find out more by visit Harper Collins at their website.

To celebrate the release of OUR ENDURING SPIRIT, I’ll be issuing a limited edition of autographed books complete with a unique original 9″x9″ sumi-ink drawing on paper of President Obama for sale up at the Storefront section of my website. If you’re interested in having the book personalized, that too is happily arranged. There’s only going to be a very small run of these so be sure to snap one up before its gone!

50% of all proceeds raised will this time go to benefit the extraordinary efforts of Doctors Without Borders. Take a look.
