Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Roscoe's Summer Job -
Have you ever been hired to walk a neighbor's cat? Well, Roscoe took on the task. Guess where the pet took him and who they met along the way!
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I'm sorry but I'm all about the art (and artists) so bear with me as I pay homage to the following creative inspirations - Norman Rockwell, Syd Mead, Craig Mullins, Hayao Miyazaki, Bill Watterson, Charles Schultz, Theodor Seuss Geisel, Andrew Wyeth, John William Waterhouse, John Tenniel, Jules Feiffer, Maurice Sendak, Eric Carle, All the CG Society, Issuu, Blurb, ConceptArt and Massive Black Artists, etc. There's just not enough space to name all of you wonderfully gifted beams of light!!!
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Meanwhile, back in school - I just can't help but soak up new stuff. Lately, I've been smitten by - The Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams, Color Drawing by Michael E. Doyle and Designing with Models by Criss B. Mills. yours truly, a student for life
