"Required Reading" Show Opening - Tonight!

As some of you may have read, I contributed a new print to the 'Required Reading' group show at Gallery1988 in Los Angeles. The opening reception is happening tonight, Friday April 15th at the gallery's Melrose location. The show is co-curated by Mitch Putnam of OMGPosters and (recent Grammy winner!) Rob Jones. The theme is classic novels and judging from what I've seen so far, it's going to be an excellent show.

Which novel did I end up with? Didn't want to spoil the surprise, but here's an early rough sketch if you want to guess. It's a book I revisit often--as well as quote in my head on a daily basis--so it was a true pleasure to be able to work on it.

For those that can't be at the opening, the gallery puts up anything that's left up on their site the day after the show. I'll also have a very limited number of prints available at sometime after that.

Oops...just saw you the end of your post saying some will be put up on here! I can't wait to see the finished piece! I can't make it to the gallery so I am hoping I can nab one here. Glad to see your successes growing!

As for the print...Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn?
