Santa Claus Lives

This post may seem a bit unseasonable. It's about Santa Claus.

IDW recently published a brand new edition of The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, L. Frank Baum's classic 1902 full-length fantasy telling the story of that generous gentleman, how he was raised by wood-nymphs in the magical Forest of Burzee, how he was granted immortality by the Council of Immortals, and how he brings toys each Christmas Eve to the children of the world.

I prepared 12 full-color paintings as well as a cover painting for this book. You can see two of them here--Santa delivering toys in his sleigh (right) and Santa arguing with the Knooks about using reindeer to help deliver toys (below).

The Live and Adventures of Santa Claus was published in time for last Christmas, but I was in the middle of a household move and didn't have a chance to share it here. So now I am, just as it turns spring, but I suppose it's better late than never.

On the other hand, if you order your copy now, you'll be in plenty of time for next Christmas. Get your holiday shopping done early!

Oz on the Bayou

I'll be at the second annual Oz on the Bayou, a Wizard of Oz convention taking place Saturday, April 1,  2017, from 11 am to 4 pm at the Terrebonne Parish Library, 151 Library Dr, Houma, Louisiana 70360.

I'll  be speaking about my Oz comics, writing, and illustration, and showing plenty of examples of my work. I'll also be on a panel discussing L. Frank Baum's The Lost Princess of Oz, the Oz book celebrating its centennial this year. You're welcome to bring any comics and books for me to sign during the autograph session, too.

The Online Store is Open Again!

The move is complete! The online store is open for business once more!

Perhaps you tried to order Age of Bronze items from the webstore in the past several months and saw the announcements that it was closed. Well, no longer! We're taking orders and filling them regularly once again. I apologize for any inconvenience during the recent move of the warehouse.

For your convenience, here's the link to the store:
