Sharon Bakar and Bernice Chauly, longtime organizers of the monthly Readings, will soon launch a collection of the best works in this series. In the meantime, the next Readings event is on next weekend. Here are examples of the Readings posters I've designed in the past:

Calm before the storm

I'm so happy!!! I finished the most difficult part of my current painting, which is to lay down the large brushstrokes in my composition. It is now 90% complete.

I'm physically exhausted.

But, mentally stimulated!

I think I'll sit down with a book now.

Today's the last day of my summer holiday. From now on, my work schedule is going to be relentless, so it makes me sad that I won't be seeing my friends as often this year. 2010 left me with no social life to speak of.

That said, I'm looking forward to what 2011 will bring.

I have health and youth on my side.

Bring it on!
