36 isn’t very many pages—unless you make picture books. Some of my favorite designers and illustrators put their talent to work on those pages. Their books simply rise to a different level. I am going to look at those books, talk to their creators, and share the inspiration. I’ll also keep you posted on my books and new projects as they are released.
