This drawing is from one of my Oakland, Ca. art school sketchbooks from 1978. I loved going to Edun Cove, a nude beach nearby in Pacifica, Ca., and drawing people (with their permission). After I finished this one, the girl looked at it and said, "Oh, you really can draw!"

I took this photo at a Normals concert in New Orleans in 1979. We are raising money to put together a documentary on the New Orleans punk rock scene of 1978-1982. #nolapunkdoc

I did a number of 3-color covers for St. Martin's Press in the early 1980s. The three color print runs were cheaper for the publisher, but always presented a challenge for me to make it look full color. Where Nobody Dies by Carolyn Wheat was released by St. Martin's Press in 1986.

Mardi Gras 1978 block print. I grew up in New Orleans and was much inspired by the city and its traditions.

A sketch from a visit to my local park, Gramercy Park, May 2, 1992. It was Open Gate Day and so there were many people there. But I was more interested in drawing the trees.

Cover comp idea for The Wolf Path by Judith Van Gieson, HarperCollins, 1992. My finish was somewhat different, but I like this simple, sketchy shilouette approach.
