I don't always get to hear stories about what happens after an author visit. But when I do, it's incredibly gratifying. I recently started sharing images of my studio space during my presentations. I talk so much about how I make my work, I wanted to show just where I work. This image came in from a mother and was accompanied by this note, "They rushed through homework and ran up to their rooms to prepare an 'art area' like today's author had at his home."
Man, I just love this so much. I loved making books and comics after school when I was a kid.
