Also, thought I'd post this -- I was asked to illustrate the latest 826 Valencia quarterly, and here it is... 826, in case you don't know, is an awesome non-profit organization dedicated to supporting kids from 6-18 in creative writing skills.  This quarterly is filled with students writings, and believe me, it was fun to illustrate. Find out more info here at http://826valencia.org/ . You can order their books there too, and all proceeds go directly to their creative writing program.
