reidsrow tribute

Here's my entry for Matthew Reidsma's High Maintenance Machine contest. I've been following this comic for a little while and it's just getting better and better!



(It took drawing the comic to realise that Wendy is never shown in profile!)

I've written some more Write Away reviews for several South African books, here are two of them: The Gift of the Sun and The Dancer. When I first opened the packet and saw the covers, I didn't think I'd like them at all. But I'm glad that writing a review forced me to spend more time studying them, they really grew on me. I'm terrible that way; when I go to a bookshop, I'll usually only give a book about three seconds to catch my eye, which doesn't do much justice to the illustrators' work, and none at all to the writers'. I think this review thing is stretching me in a good way, getting me to admire things I might not even notice in my usual clueless book shop rampages.
