This poster was published by School Library Journal in early 2017, and sent out with the magazine to 15,000 school librarians. I made it as a personal project after the 2016 election, with the idea of creating a poster around the subject of protest that would appeal to elementary school age kids. Many thanks to Mark Tuchman, an art director at SLJ who saw it on my Facebook, pitched it to the magazine, and helped secure support from two of my publishers – Houghton Mifflin and Macmillan. An interview with the magazine on the subject of creating the poster can be found here.

A few drawings of vehicles from sketchbooks. The top one was created after my son asked me how cars work. Since I had difficulty explaining it verbally, I did a drawing which made things clear and easily understandable. Sometimes it really pays off to be an artist. #superdad
