What Once Was Grey Gardens...

As some of you know, the powers that be have pushed their weight around, causing my latest work, A Home Called Grey Gardens, to be canceled. This really sucks as I have already invested so much time, energy, love and personal funding into this project. I have made some amazing friends, found out some really great things about you guys and hate where that leaves us. In the coming months I hope to release some of the finished artwork from the book of the two Eddies.

A Home Called Grey Gardens - Update

First off, I can't say enough about how very nice everyone in the Grey Gardens community has been to me since I announced my book. Thank you all for your continual questions and support. Secondly, while I had wanted to release the book during the April-May 09' calender, I have to announce that we are experiencing delays which may push back it's release considerably. However, to appease the crowd, we may be releasing some new greeting cards featuring the Edie's throughout the next coming months.

I do hope you are all enjoying the fall season and all of the beautiful warm colors that come with it.

Best Wishes!
