Hello, again. It’s June 1st now and I’ve been away from this blog for a while. Philip, Wednesday, and I had moved during May and then were without the internet for a couple of weeks after that. But here we are again in the digital age. We moved into a 100 year-old barn that is still in downtown Ann Arbor (the image on your left). We live across the street from a train station,too. This place should end up being full of inspiration. Or at least a train book.






We have a lot more space to work now, which we are happily adjusting to. Below is our desk area now. For those of you who are artists, we get northern light through those windows!

We’ve had some good fortune with the new book, A Sick Day for Amos McGee. Have I mentioned it yet? Did you know I drew the pictures in that book? Did I happen to mention it’s now available in stores?

Also, Phil and I just did our first event for the book at Madison Square Park hosted by the park and Time Out New York Kids Magazine. It was loud and scary for me because it required talking but we got through it. It was actually really fun and I felt a little honored to be there. They wrote a nice review in this month’s issue of the magazine, which you can see here.

A long time ago I showed a sketch of a bunch of bears. Here is how that turned out.

That’s all for now!

    A good post. I like the design of the room, and especially there is enough light so that it can contribute to your productivity, plus a good environment. I think that is why you can product such a good children book. I have gone through the review and will check it out soon.
