I hope you can find something new that youContinue Reading

I was so excited when I came home yesterday afternoon to a box from Ka-Blam. They have been responsible for printing all of Illopond’s anthologies thus far and they always do a great job.

Over the weekend, the amazing Jon Woodward of Zero2Illo posted a feature on the kid’s book anthology I participated in. You can read the feature here. Also be on the lookout for an interview with me on his site about my experience with self-publishing.
Jon has created an amazing site full of resources for illustrators and other freelancers. He has also recently launched a new brand: Then There Were None. Here he creates limited edition collections of clothing and accessories featuring his illustrations of endangered animals. The proceeds go to charitable causes that help protect endangered species. I plan to get my hands on some of his work for holiday gifts as soon as the new collection is launched on November 18th. Please check it out!
And if you still haven’t purchased your copy of ‘8: A Kid’s Book Anthology’ you can pick it up here. And stay tuned for the new episode of Chris Oatley’s Artcast with all the book’s creators that should go live this week!
