Claimus Flees Manhattan

Claimus is a bit paranoid.
I've been remiss in posting about some illustrations I did a couple of months ago for the short story Claimus Flees Manhattan written by Ken Wohlrob.  The story is being released in six parts by Undie Press.  Each part has its own illustration, and so far the first three have been made available for your reading pleasure.  Read part one by clicking here.

Above you can see the images for parts 2 and 3 -- Claimus's apartment and his deodorant.  (I was stunned to find that Aromeo didn't already exist as a brand of deodorant!) Claimus was such an entertaining character to illustrate and there were an abundance of images that leapt to mind while reading.  Also check out the great original music Ken wrote to accompany the story.

Forgetting How To Hold A Fork

Last fall, I did the cover and some inside lettering for the new book, Forgetting How to Hold a Fork (and other momentary lapses of reason) recently published by 826NYC.  From the back of the book:
More than just a nod to Pink Floyd and temporary mindlessness, this short story collection - written entirely by New York City high school students - is chock full of fascinating details and keen insight into the lives of an eccentric cast of characters.
From the tale of the murder-inclined schoolteacher to the description of the New Yorker longing to return to her Haitian roots, the stories keep you constantly intrigued.  Are we destined to repeat the mistakes of our parents?  Why does Sylvia pick her nose?  What happened to Jessica after running away from home?  Find out the answers to all these questions and more in this extremely entertaining collection.
Sometimes painful, sometimes ribald, Forgetting How to Hold a Fork is sure to produce tears, laughter, and that odd mixture of sadness and satisfaction that comes only from reaching the end of an exceptional book.
When I first read the short stories, I was surprised at the quality and maturity of the material written by these high school students.  Definitely check it out! The book is available at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. for a great price of $10.

*Update: You can purchase the book online over at Matt Singer's site.  Matt is a great artist with a diverse range of interests (my kind of artist!) While you are there, check out his Secret Identity Glasses he designed for the Superhero Store.
