In case you'd ever like me for a mentor...

... if you'd ever want a mental person for a mentor that is! Anyway, I've been invited to participate in an online mentorship program, available to anybody who might want to spend one-on-one time with me online.

The program is called the Motivarti Mentorship Program, and information is below. I'm only taking on one mentee, and the session starts in the spring, so deadline for that session is December 18th. Here's the link:

I am apparently the only children's book illustrator on the list, everyone else is in animation. So, if any of you are interested in a career in animation, check out the others on the list too!
