Was in South Philly yesterday and found these little gems at Molly's in the Italian Market.
I only learned about Roger Duvoisin a couple years ago, incredible illustrator! Just a beautiful line and gorgeous composition. I wish these old books had every page in color instead of every other spread.
One of my favorite Richard Scarry books of all time, Rabbit and Friends, I scored two for a $1.25 each!
Another oldie but goodie.

And last but not least, I've never seen this one before, but its pretty much a perfect book and subtly teaches good manners.

I've been slowly carving a little space in our basement for a bunker/man-cave area along with my tools and the random bicycle pump. Yes, I'm afraid I've reached that age where a small staking of territory is necessary and beneficial to the entire household.
Anyway, found some little wood scraps and made a little puzzle/gift for someone. One mans junk is another....

Can't believe how fast the summer is going by. Independence Day was great, lots of good food, friends and family. Oskar had his first fireworks experience and discovered the joys of sparklers too.  Picked this cake up at Genuardi's, it was the only one, not sure if it's because they only made one or it was so awesome I luckily got that last one?


A recent piece in this month's Philadelphia Magazine. Two best friends have kids. One kid is wild the other is not. Because of this, the friendship begins to crumble, a touchy subject is handled deftly via excellent art direction from Jesse Southerland and liberal use of animal stand-ins.
