Meet David Shannon!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

I got to Hicklebee's and found a sea of babies!
David Shannon was actually quite hilarious. He read his latest book, 'It's Christmas, David!' to the crowd.
He then drew David & broke it down for everyone with a little story. The jagged teeth are based on his childhood friend's yellow, ugly teeth. His nose is a crooked triangle because he broke his nose 5 times. My favorite: the left nostril is bigger because he's left handed (nose-picking... chuckle chuckle :)
David: what accessory could we give David?
Everyone: A HAT!!
Small voice from the crowd: Awww, I was gonna say ornaments for earrings.
David: No crossdressing, David!

Here's a lil video I took of him explaining where he gets ideas for his books :)

Sketchbook Cover & Back

Not quite sure yet. Still playing. The blank space is for me to draw something just for YOU! I was going to add a edition labeling system sort of thing on the cover, but I think I'll let the back image describe which sketchbook it is. Thoughts?

May the Wild Holiday Rumpus Begin!

Putting together my sketchbook-for-sale
which be available for the holidays!

Storytime with David Wiesner

Yep. I was on the floor with all the kids, and definitely the only one over the age of 11.
Most valuable nugget of wisdom: 'Draw what you want. You can always learn to draw later.'
Seeing David Shannon today! Yay San Jose!
