I am proud to be included in the display at Elting Library in New Paltz.

Last Friday, Elting Library hosted a reading of Tangled in Magic, and a preview reading of the second book of the Karakesh Chronicles, Guided by Magic.  I gave a short talk about how I did the illustrations using carving blocks and tools.

Then I invited the audience to make art using stamps.  My collection includes store-bought stamps and others that I carved myself.

Stamps lend themselves to multiple uses besides illustrations.  I’ve used them to print stationery, cards, and logos.  The trickiest part is remembering to reverse the image.  The part that is carved out will be the color of the paper, and all lettering must run backward.
