some friendly product placement

Yesterday I met up with my friend Sally Nicholls at Camberwell's fabulous House cafe. She told me a bit about her latest book she's writing which is very exciting because her first novel, Ways To Live Forever, was amazing! (She's also won some cool awards for it, like this year's Waterstone's Children's Book prize.) If you haven't read it, you absolutely must. It'll make you cry but it is so worth it! Here's the Scholastic site where you can read people's comments about it. (Mine is buried somewhere in there.)

And the postman had an exciting delivery last week, this t-shirt from fellow DFC contributor James Turner!

And I'm not recommending this one because I haven't seen it yet, but I just ordered a copy of Where Grows the Bitter Herb by Ben Powis, a comic which looked incredibly lovely and tantalising from what I could see of it online.

wow! your tee shirt rocks as much as I thought it would! Possibly even more!
Keep your eyes peeled for my pkg in the mail. I keep meaning to blog about your painting, but I haven't been home during proper daylight hours to give it the photo shoot it deserves. Would you mind if I crop it and use it for my banner on my blog?
I will definitely give you all the credit!!!
The artwork on Where Grows the Bitter Herb looks so interesting! Very unique and even a bit edgy. I like :-)

Happy art-making,

Good luck with your work, I really like what you're doing! :-)
