The illustrations for Earth Day, the 19th story in The Book of Bartholomew were created by Matt Wells. Matt is a Minneapolis-based artist who has created many album covers for local bands and is a member of the art group Rogue Citizen. He also has been a previous artist for The Book of Bartholomew. He has illustrated story #2: Gerald Teaches a Life Lesson and #8 Ned the Giant.
I have greatly enjoyed working with Matt on these three stories he has illustrated. I find his work insightful, professional and just enjoyable to look at. Ned the Giant still cracks me up when I look at it. And check out his group, Rogue Citizen. This foursome do live paintings at concerts and other events around town. Their exhibit last year was about the U. S. prison system. At the end of the exhibit, any piece not purchased was executed - literally, they were destroyed - usually with an axe.
