Here it is. I'm pleased to see COVER STORY: THE ART OF JOHN PICACIO listed amongst LOCUS' list of the best art books of 2006. Awesome.

Hello John,

Wow, you do keep busy. Great to see your artwork, and I look forward to hanging out at the Elf Fantasy Fair.

By the way, any joy in terms of those travel arrangements? I haven't heard anything new.

Be well,

David.

Hi, David --

Actually, I haven't heard anything, come to think of it. I'll query them again this week, and let you know when I hear. Thanks for reminding me.

I'll check in with you as the date approaches, regardless.....

Congrats! Your book is definitely on my list of art books to pick up as the pocketbook allows this year. I am hoping for sooner rather than later!
