Hey! So I got a fun commission a bit ago. It was to do a Johnny Hiro poster in the style of the American Library Association’s “READ for America’s Libraries” posters from the 80’s and 90’s. Here’s a couple of those posters.

I wanted to do something a bit less posed, so I put Johnny and Mayumi in a more relaxed, natural setting. And I wanted to include some o’ my favorite books, instead of just one. Also, the commission was for someone in Canada, and growing up, it always annoyed him that it said “America’s Libraries.” Heh. I like that he felt un-included as a Canadian. Bookworm culture makes me happy. So we changed it to “at your library.” Anyway, here’s the commission.

Hope your day’s going well. Sorry for the lack of posts lately, my free time goes to a lot of Alison and Her Robot stuff.
