Big news: My book is coming out in Fall 2013

Holly Golightly_ Breakfast at Tiffanys 2011
I’m very excited to announce that Chronicle Books will be publishing my very own book in fall 2013. The working title is:


The book will contain my watercolor portraits of the most beloved female characters from Scout Finch to Scarlett O’Hara, accompanied by hand-lettered quotes. I’ve done about 20 characters (for my show A Thousand Ships). I have quite a few more that I’ll be working on in time for publication. I don’t want to post too many images. Won’t it be more fun to see them in the book? The one above was previously posted. She’s Holly Golightly from the novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote.
