Kepler's Day in the Park

I created the illustration for the poster and Mark designed the type and layout. 
Mark also designed the invitations and publicity postcards for the Kepler's re-opening events.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of its rebirth, Kepler’s bookstore in Menlo Park will host many events in October, including a “Day in the Park” on Saturday, Oct. 14, a celebration of local authors, artists, musicians and storytellers

Day in the Park
On Saturday, Oct. 14, at Burgess Park in the Menlo Park Civic Center, Kepler’s will host a free family “Day in Park” -- a celebration of local authors, artists, musicians and storytellers -- from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The event includes food, activities for children, an outdoor bookstore selling more than 100 titles by local authors, and a “bookswap” -- bring a book, take a book.
Among the artists will be jewelry designer Soni Bergman, photographer Marc Silber, illustrator and painter Liz Amini-Holmes, computer-animation designer Mark Cordell Holmes, jewelry designer Mendy Marks, and ceramic artist Suzanne Couch.
Local musicians who will perform are Sandy Greenfield, singer/songwriter of an blend of acoustic folk, rock and hip hop with instrumentalist Adam Rothschild; the David Chaidez Quintet, which puts a modern spin on old standards; the Higher Ground Players, soul, jazz and hip-hop musicians; and Summit Jazz Band.

Among the storytellers will be: Walter Mayes, aka Walter the Giant; Alice Kalomas, author of “Sir Wrinkles”; Tammy Coia, author of the autobiographical
“Fig on a Stick”; Dashka Slater, author of “Baby Shoes” and “Firefighters in the Dark”; Becky Zeren, folk tales from around the world; and the Peninsula Youth Theater, young theatric entertainers.
Local community organizations and merchants will participate.
