Thank you 826Chi! I had a great time presenting my drawing techniques to your writing lab class today. I really enjoyed reading to the kids (and adults) and answering their questions.
Here are some of the questions I answered today:
Q: Who is your favorite children’s book author?
A. Dr. Seuss
Q. What inspired you to write “The Adventures of the Salamander”?
A. I found the original story that I wrote when I was five years old in my mom’s attic. I was very excited to find my old story, but when I read it, the ending was so bad, I had to write it all over again.
Q. What is your favorite illustration you drew for the books?
A. I really like the picture in which Slippy and Squeeks are running from the Earth-Wyrms. I also really like all the maps.
Q. Are you writing any other books?
A. Yes, I am working on finishing “Return of the Mirms” the sequel to “The Adventures of the Salamander.”
I also really enjoyed the pink salamander drawing we worked on together, that was fun!
