I’m excited to announce that after many years of being out-of-print, my illustrated Pinocchio is back in print in a new paperback edition! The book is now available for preorder at a pre-order discount from my site here. All books ordered from my site come signed and personalized when requested. All preorders will begin shipping after January 17th.
Once there was a lonely woodcutter named Geppetto-who dreamed of having a boy of his own. So one day he carved a boy out of wood and named him Pinocchio. When the puppet comes to life, it’s Geppetto’s dream come true. Except Pinocchio turns out to be not such a nice boy after all. Pinocchio enjoys nothing better than creating mischief and playing mean tricks. As he discovers, being bad is much more fun than being good. For a while, anyway. Happily for Pinocchio, he will learn that there is much more to being a real boy than having fun. A magical tale that has entertained children of all ages for more than a hundred years, this lavishly and gorgeously illustrated new edition is the perfect introduction of a timeless classic to a new generation of readers. And that’s no lie!
Now a Netflix original movie! Includes an introduction by Guillermo del Toro!

My family and I are about to make a big move to the midwest. This is both exciting and daunting, as I have lived in SoCal for over 20 years now and it has become as much my home as my roots back in Nebraska. There are many reasons that have lead to this decision and it is something that has been on my mind for a few year now. I don’t have all the answers right now, but will most likely go into depth when I have more time to reflect.
In the meantime…
To avoid moving merchandise, I am offering a MOVING SALE to deplete inventory and liquidate some items. Starting now, everything in the store (except for prints and original artwork) is at least 10% off when you use the code: EXODUS at checkout. Items that are already marked down will have the 10% discount applied making those items as much as 40% off. At some time before the move in August, I will be temporarily shutting down the store until I get settled in my new location.
That is all for now. More about this adventure coming soon.
