Olympia Event With Nikki McClure


What an honor to be appearing with Nikki McClure in her hometown of Olympia, WA. Nikki’s art, which graces the cover and eight chapter headings of Closer to the Ground, is flat-out gorgeous. She hand-cuts each illustration from a single sheet of black construction paper, using only an X-acto knife. Nikki’s bigtime, too: Her children’s books, calendars, cards, posters, t-shirts and fine art have a worldwide following, and the Bellevue Art Museum is currently showing a career retrospective of her work. So I was blown away when she agreed to work with me on Closer to the Ground, and her illustrations captured the spirit of the book better than I ever could have imagined.

And now, we’re doing an event together on Wednesday, January 23rd at 7:30pm at the Olympia Timberland Library. I’m stoked. If you’re anywhere in the area, come on down and check it out.
