My Space Hop workshop yesterday at the Paddington Children's Library went well. The librarian Laurence Foe even donned a Storm Trouper outfit and the staff wore antennae so we'd all be space themed! We designed aliens and some of the older kids made space comics. A group of four girls were in stitches with laughter over a comics jam they did together, and they said I could redraw it for my blog today. Here's their version, hee hee!
The writer of You Can't Eat a Princess!, Gillian Rogerson (the other space princess) is meeting up with me for Thought Bubble in Leeds, maybe Mr Fart Bubble will want to come with us.
I'm sitting here at the Fleece Station and just got off the phone with Anne Cottringer, a filmmaker and the writer of our upcoming picture book, When Titus Took the Train. This is almost too good to be true, but Anne is putting in a bid to be honourary Fleece Station member with a documentary about sheep shearing! Here's a fascinating clip about how to shear a sheep. It's awfully therapeutic watching that wool come off.
