It's Marathon Time

Yep, a marathon.  But no running involved.  February is Picture Book Marathon Month.

It's simple, 26 picture book manuscripts in 28 days (I get 2 days off.)  Since I like to draw I'm going to instead aim for 26 picture book covers in 28 days.  Maybe with a short plot synopsis to make the cover more coherent?

Get all the details here:  http://www.picturebookmarathon.org/

So, now I'm accountable.  Why do I do things like this to myself?

I'm in the Local Paper

I was hanging out in my wife's class on Friday when a reporter showed up.  I had no idea what was going on but he just started taking pictures while I was playing "The Monster Game" with some of the kids.  I found out later that the reporter was doing a story on what kids do during recess on really smoggy days (it was really smoggy on Friday.)  

Somebody told the reporter "That guy in there is a local author/illustrator."  That's when the guy came in snapping a bunch of photos.

I think the whole thing is pretty funny.
