Earlier this year I made these little paintings for my publisher / author friend Mauricio Velázquez de León (duopress), for him to leave behind as thank you gifts after events at various bookstores. Mauricio, a.k.a. "Puck," wrote Doodle New York, the book he was promoting. The cab image was inspired by a doodle activity in the book, which I illustrated.

All of the paintings were done on small wooden plaques, ready for hanging. The top one, in acrylic, was a gift for Mauricio and his family—that's them, in the cab. We've made so many books together, I've lost count.
