Poster/Book Reveal

posted on February 17, 2021

Last night’s poster reveal for this year’s Ohioana poster and conversation with David Weaver was a blast. And here’s the poster that was revealed. I’m very honored to have been asked to create a poster this year for the Festival’s 15th anniversary. The Festival is going to be virtual again as so many things still are, but I’m looking forward to the day when we can all safely gather again with our books and fellow readers at the Columbus Public Library.

Also revealed last night was my new book for this year’s Festival, The Complete Funky Winkerbean Volume 10 which I sort of did a sneak reveal of the other day. The new book as well as its predecessors can be acquired simply going to the Books section on this site or directly to Amazon.com. The book contains the beginning of the Lisa’s Story arc with behind the scenes looks at its origins and creation including actual sketchbook pages covering its development. It also includes Wally Winkerbean’s tour of duty in Afghanistan, which, sadly, is still as relevant today. Props to The Kent State University Press for creating such beautiful books. As someone once told me: “They sit well in the hand.”, and indeed they do.
