The Boy From A Paper Moon

Progress on the first day. Laying in the composition. Lots of thalo blue, in fact, heavy all over on blue and green.

I think you have a nice style in your drawings, and i think they would make delightful children's books. I think you should pursue that this year.

Several years ago I read the story behind GOOD NIGHT MOON in The Wall Street Journal. The woman that wrote that story, wrote it at her kitchen table, in a poor section of New York City, in half an hour. (Look it up)

A lot of people can draw, just as a lot of people can act, BUT only some people seem to have the right stuff that grabs the reader or the viewer. I think you should give it a chance. You have STYLE.

Thank you! That is very encouraging. I would love to pursue illustrating. I think one needs to find an agent to do something like that.

I love Good Night, Moon. We read it often. And Runaway Bunny, too.

I definitely 2nd Moneythoughts commentary. You do have a gift and much of your art is, indeed, whimsical. Get thyself an agent, woman!

So beautiful. So beautiful. So beautiful.

Hey, does moneythoughts happen to be an agent? I think he is right on in what he says, seriously. You do have what it takes.

Moneythoughts is not an agent. But, I bet the Internet could be a place to start looking for one, or contacting a publisher for a suggestion.
