Ok, illustrators. Picture it: You’re walking down the street and you see a fabulous art director coming your way. You don’t have your portfolio, so what do you do? You stick out your toe and stun them with original footwear awesomeness. Zazzle and Keds have come together so that you can customize your sneaker for the world to see. Lace up or slip on? Which picture? It’s all up to you, and your feet (via Mighty Goods).
One more for the illustrators: Linda Urban has a little interview with illustrator Marla Frazee.
In case you missed it, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast has a lovely interview with the very busy Jane Yolen. 40 books under contract? Wow.
I can’t remember where I got the link, so I apologize, but I wanted to post it anyway. Whether you are hiring an agent, or firing an agent there are things you should think about.
We had a lovely lunch on Wednesday with some other writers and illustrators. Laini and Jim (who might be the sweetest AND most creative couple I know) came through for the Radiohead concert and pulled together a few Seattle buddies for lunch in Pioneer Square. AND Jaime brought cupcakes.
My oldest is going to kindergarten next month. I’m taking him for a spontaneous trip down the Oregon coast this weekend to visit sea lions, among other things. We’re off to get sandy.
I leave you with a little video from Adam Rex.
