Interests
So kids are really into the graphic novels these days. I think its great, kids getting visual vocabularies, experiencing how stories can be told in sequential art etc. I've heard parents say, 'put that back its not a real book' so prejudice against them still exists of course, but the fact that kids are interested in them, even reluctant readers, is pretty cool.

Schools seem a little AR(Accelerated Reader) obsessed. I know its an easy tool for assigning reading and measuring if the kid read the book, but AR rates a book by vocabulary, not interest or quality, so kids can miss out on great books that might make them better readers. Of course there are teachers, parents, and librarians to help kids find books that interest them. And if some of those books are graphic novels or comics then so be it. It's summer after all!
  • Listening to: The Great Deluge audio book

Hello! My name's Kathy and I bought a bunch of fanart from you at AWA today! I will email you my scans, for some reason they seem to scan light, my scanner must be lame. :(

oh yeah I need to fix that email link. I don't think I'll need the digital forms since you were so nice and gave me print outs, but thanks.

Anywayz, Just finished uploading your lovely commissions to my deviantart. I tried darkening the scans on some, so it might look a bit better. Thanks again!
