Book Launch!

If you are in TO tonight, we are having a launch for the sports poetry book And the Crowd Goes Wild!

The launch is at 5:30 at the Northern District Branch of the Toronto Library (40 Orchard View Blvd., Toronto - right near Yonge and Eg).

Carol-Ann Hoyte has assembled an all-star cast of poets from around the world. I am humbled that she asked me to provide the illustrations. 

Here are a few examples.

I tried to capture the energy of the athlete with quick darting lines and (mostly) bold solid colours.

The book has already won a big award too! The Moonbeam Award bronze medal for poetry!
