Last week I spent the day at Southport Elementry School and gave a little presentation about illustrating, art, and picture books.

The class was riveted by my book holding skills.

They were equally impressed with my finger pointing techniques.

We ended a fine afternoon by creating a cool collaborative drawing of: Tuggy, the cowboy, robot, tugboat.

It was loads of fun. The kids asked some great questions, and hopefully learned a little something about the creative process.
