Me & the Devil!  I am finally getting around to annoucing this book release here!  I've been darting all over the northeast and Florida enjoying the summer with friends and family for the last 2-3 months so I haven't been in one place long enough to get to this properly.  I've been selling them as I've been travelling around, getting them into book stores and doing signings and all that stuff...what a great time!
Here is the description from my website:
This series of art has been published into a full color, hand-signed, hard-bound limited edition book of 666 copies. This largely wordless book visually narrates the part fictional and part non-fictional story of legendary blues musician, Robert Johnson.
The book is cloth hard bound with silver inlay book title on the cover. The interior pages have been carefully proofed to match the color and values of the original art and printed on 80# Xpressions paper. A special red book jacket was produced for the first 333 copies. The book contains 44 pages and each book is hand numbered and signed by the artist on a special page printed within the book.
Various illustrations in this book have been so far accepted a total of 15 times from all the major illustration competitions including the Society of Illustrators, the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, American Illustration, Spectrum and 3X3. One of the images, "Got Down On My Knees and Prayed" has also won a prestigious Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York.
Below are some shots of the book, links to pages to purchase the book and shots of a couple of exhibitions the work has been in already.  Thank you to everyone that has commented in the past here on Drawger when I was in the process of doing the work.  Here's the final result and I couldn't have been happier!

Vermont Opening (I found a place that has worse walls than the Society!)
Local news station in Vermont interviewing me...apparently the show was big news up there. It was the largest turn out they ever had for an opening.
