This comic was inspired by a conversation I had with children’s book author Arthur Slade  on his Facebook wall.
My big news from this past week: I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be illustrating a picture book written by author/comedian/actor Michael Ian Black , to be published by Simon & Schuster in 2012. Until recent events , I had never anticipated that my first publication credit in children’s lit would be for illustration instead of writing.
Two lessons I’ve learned:
1) Be open to new career opportunities.
2) Don’t get in a creative rut. Push yourself to venture out of your comfort zone on a regular basis (or have a good friend  to help do the pushing, like I did!).
