Wow!! That is a great cover! Cannot wait to have it in my hands! The burning house looks very similar to the towering inferno illustration I found in the Park East Magazine.

Not until September 2009? It's going to be a challenge for us Floraphiles to hold our collective breath for that long of a time. Oh well, the book (love the cover!) will most certainly be worth the wait!

Ashtray: the burning building is from an untitled and undated tempera painting from about ten years after the PE illo.

Paula: We will be issuing a number of new fine art prints in the coming months, which will hopefully allow Floraphiles to exhale periodically.

J.D.: I promised we'd get you down off that ledge!

Neato! It definitley looks a lot like the park east illustration just without all the other levels piled on top and without the plane crashing into the building. Maybe Flora had an obsession with buring buildings! Well maybe not an obsession but say an interest in any event.
