HELP! Which is better – DOODLE / CARTOONS or CARTOONING? Please comment with your thoughts! Starting in September I am going to lead projects in an after school program for children 2nd through 5th grade. Should I do funny stories encouraging children to finish them off doodling or should I teach step by step cartooning?

Doodling is such a carefree happy activity that I can’t make up my mind. Should I give them a choice?

PIRATES COMING OUT OF A BOOK

This is an image from one of my older books, a rather too complicated story of a grandmother reading a pirate book to her granddaughter before succumbing to alzheimer's disease. It is a wordless book with images of them communicating through the book. With this story line you can see why the book didn't go anywhere. I still quite like the image, and one hopes the saying that nothing is ever wasted is true.

My PIA AND PETER POCUS manuscript is now available on my site. It was meant to be a Harry Potter primer picture book and net me millions. That didn’t quite happen but it is still fun with all sorts of sugary and candy spells. You can view the entire book in my gallery.
