On Wednesday April 20th I was delighted to answer questions via Skype with the 2nd graders of Lincoln/McKinley elementary school. A friend of mine works there and heard that the Art and Technology teacher has these Skype meet and greets and were looking for an illustrator. She got in contact with me and we set a date for me to talk to her class.
I was amazed at how much they loved the series. There were a lot of great questions asking me about my background in art and where did the idea for the series come from. They were so inspired that their art project for this year is to create their own When I Was Little pages which they will collect into a book and show to their fellow classmates and parents! How exciting and amazing is that?! I will be keeping in touch with Ms. Punke and her 2nd Grade class' progress on their own When I Was Little.
In other news, I was interviewed for ESCapism at c2e2 about my career in art and my children's books. They wrote up a very nice piece and posted the video interview just recently. So click on the image to check it out!
