Some of you know I volunteer at 826 Seattle (click here for more info), where I illustrate stories on the fly, trying to keep up with the imaginations of 20 or so 2nd and 3rd graders. The kids just have a great time and sometimes send thank you letters. Carmen sent this note along with her wonderful drawing: Dear Dana, Thank you for Helping me with my Book it was fun. I rally lik your drawing it looks cool. I lyke the fild trip thank you. your drawing is up on awer walls. Sincerely Carmen. Don't you love her picture of me? Spitting image! Thanks Carmen!
I draw sticky note cartoons for Vicki and stick 'em on the coffee pot so she'll see them first thing in the morning. They're usually about something going on in our lives - our kid, the garden, our careers. I hope you like them too, but you'll have to get your own cup of coffee.
