So I'm going to try something new.
You know what my art looks like. Time to see someone else's.
Yesterday I spent a long, fun day at Brookline Elementary School. I met lots of new friends, including the obviously talented Oliver. He's in kindergarten, and I think his picture of the cover of my book, The Rules is better than mine. I absolutely love the olives he drew.
He comes by his talent honestly, his mom Katie made an amazing bulletin board of cut paper reproductions of my book covers. Check 'em out here. She rocks.
So hey, if you have some cool fan art, send it my way and who knows...
Maybe I'll steal it and turn it into a book.

The Messiest Desk

Hi Charlotte!

So, It's come to my attention that I am expected to sort of update this thing once in a while...

Huh. Okay. I'll give it a try.

I've been buried in my studio for the last several days, hunched over a computer keyboard designing my next book, The Messiest Desk. The artwork was finished in September, got scanned and sent to me. I had to put in the words, design the cover and jacket and all that good stuff.

I recently got Adobe InDesign and I am still sort of figuring it out, so there was something of a learning curve. A long, looping, jagged curve...

The book is scheduled to be finished and back in the USA by the end of July. we'll see if that actually happens. In the meantime, enjoy the sneak peek previews of the title page and one of the layouts and remember: Keep Your Desk Clean!
