These are from a series I’m working on for the good folks at Green E-books. They are releasing the works of the great Southern humorist Lewis Grizzard in electronic book form, and I’ve had the privilege of interpreting the titles of several of the books into illustrations.

Ex Libris!

I was enjoying some of the beautiful bookplates (ex libris) on the BibliOdyssey blog, and it dawned on me that- while I have always loved bookplate art- it’s been ages since I created one of my own. After doing so, I started feeling all giddy and generous and such and decided I wanted to share it with everybody else in the blogosphere!

So download away, dear reader! I have uploaded a high-res version (click on the thumbnail to get to it) so you’ll have a cleaner printout. All I ask is that you don’t try to re-sell it in any shape, form or fashion, and that you leave my little signature on it. Other than that..feel free to printout 5 billion of them for you and your closest friends. Also, please remember to use only a good acid-free paper and library grade glue to paste it in the front of your books.

Hope you like it. Happy reading, everybody.

[UPDATE: My apologies for a bit of confusion I may have caused. By “library grade glue”, I mean any acid-free glue or paste. Guess I shoulda just said that, huh?]¬†
