Let us celebrate the trees (for it is Arbor Day.)

Arbor Day. A day to celebrate the mighty tree. Does anyone celebrate Arbor Day anymore? Maybe Earth Day has stolen all the glory. That Earth Day is too general for me. Let us celebrate the TREE!!

Here's a gag page from our forthcoming Tubby book. Not so much a tree gag as it is a boy-that-Tubby-sure-is-a-pig gag.


And there are more reasons to celebrate the tree in D+Q's future. Like Leanne Shapton's forthcoming petit livre called The Native Trees of Canada. We'll talk about this book some more in the future but for now here are some rough scans of the cover and a couple of pages. Leanne made a sketchbook and worked right in it causing some smudging and bleeding to wonderful effect.






Hang tight, Trees. Print is almost dead and then you shall once again rule this earth. Patience, O Noble Trees.
