I am so excited about my new book Dharma Delight available in stores and online on May 10th, 2016. It’s a visionary post pop comic guide to Buddhism and Zen. I started working on the artwork in 2007, with many of the paintings that were in my art exhibits in 2010 and 2013, and some of the artwork was made for promotions for the Village Zendo Zen meditation center in NYC.
I started putting the images together and writing the text in 2014. At first I only had a patchy idea of want the book would be, but as it came together I could see it as not just a personal account of my experience with Buddhism and Zen, but also possibly a new way for the young and curious enter the Dharma gate.
My friends at the Village Zendo encouraged me and my teachers there looked over the material for accuracy. I’m proud to say Zen Master Roshi Enkyo O’Hara wrote a wonderful preface to start the book in the right direction. Dharma Delight is published by the Tuttle Publishing Company whose editor and marketing people helped shape the book into something that made sense with their excellent list of books with Asian themes.
The book is available on Amazon.com.
Signed copies are available here.
