BliNet.org is a non-profit organization fighting the idea of expanding the Bellingham airport for bigger jets. People can fly internationaly from either Vancouver, BC or Seattle, WA which are both less than two hours away from Bellingham, so there's really no need for such expansion. The drawbacks, such as pollution, noise and wildlife disturbance seem to far outweight the pros. I was delighted to be commissioned to do an illustration for the cause.

"On a New York-to-Denver flight, a commercial jet would generate 840 to 1,660 pounds of carbon dioxide per passenger. That's about what an SUV generates in a month." - USA TODAY 12/19/2006
Wholesale for US Customers
December 11, 2008
In the past weeks, we've received many emails and phone calls from retailers telling us how difficult it is for them to get our books through the regular distribution channels. The problem is this: our distributor, Diamond, is no longer keeping an inventory of our titles. They let back orders accumulate, and once those back orders reach a certain level, they place an order with us to fill the demand. The delays are multiplied since many of our wholesalers (Ingram, Baker and Taylor etc.) depend on Diamond to supply them.
Therefore, we've decided to set up an easy way for our US customers to order wholesale from us, with discounts ranging from 50% to 70% off the cover price. We charge a fixed shipping rate of $4.00 per order, no matter how much you buy. Sounds like a deal? Check it out here.

I was recently interviewed by Conch on his radio show "Words and Pictures". I enjoyed meeting Conch, but for some reason I had a very hard time concentrating. We had to start the interview over three times. I've been hesitant about posting a link to the archived interview because I thought I made a fool of myself.
A few days ago, my friend Joe told me he heard the interview and he thought it was very good. He told me that I shouldn't be embarassed to post it on my site. My beloved wife Nancy also approved. So there!
