Hey kids,

A few months ago, my good friend – and extraordinary quilter — Abigail Kokai produced the first-ever fan art for my book, Punch-Up! I’ve seen this piece from its conception to conclusion and have been amazed by every stitch.

I am extremely proud and pleased to share this piece with you.

(Click on the image to enlarger and see all of the glorious detail.)

Abby describes her piece and process:

Punch Up 15″ x 21″ October 2008
Quilted and embellished adaptation of an illustration by David Brame, for the comic Punch-Up, written by Frank Cvetkovic.

Technique: Photo iron transfer image, layered netting, printed and solid sheers with fabric placed as graphic elements placed behind image. Machine quilted, hand embellished with ribbon, black glass beads and letter beads. Spray painted and hand stitched accent outlines around image.

Please visit Abby’s website — abigailkokai.carbonmade.com – and shower her with your admiration and praise.

And, I guess if we can’t get the book published, we can always make Abby quilt all 260 pages!

Your friend (and part-time lover),
