free signed poster give away! at NY ComicCon

New York ComicCon attendees, there is a free signed poster give away.
date and time: Saturday, October 10, at 1:00PM
booth: #2229 McMillan booth
They have about 100 all autographed posters to give away.

The poster is to promote an upcoming book I had collaborated with Pulitzer Prize winning writer Michael Cunningham. His new book of short stories  A Wild Swan is due out in early November from Farrar Straus & Giroux. I have illustrated and lettered the cover, and created 10 full page interior illustrations as well as opener drop caps for each story and some spot illustrations. We have worked on this book on and off for close to a year, and I am extremely excited it is finally coming out. (It will make a great holiday gift for sure!)

Last week I spend some time at FSG office signing all the posters (please see photo below). Posters are given away first come, first served bases.
Big thank you to Christopher Richards, Rodrigo Corral, Jonathan Lippincott, Adalis Martinez, and everyone else at FSG for making this happen.
