Last year I was busy for several months, working on the artwork for a picture book for Gibbs Smith Publisher. The book is called Y is for Yorick: A Slightly Irreverent Shakespearean ABC Book for Grownups, which is a pretty accurate title. The author is Shakespeare scholar Jennifer Adams, and her text is both funny and informative.

Each letter is matched with a character from one of Shakespeare’s plays, which was both enormous fun and pretty intimidating. (It’s not every day you have to illustrate the work of the greatest author in the English language, right?)

Here are some of the spreads:

You can get a copy on Amazon, or look for it in your local bookstore!
