Super Alphabet launched! :D


video

Hi everyone! I've started a new project on Kickstarter. It's my new kids picture book "Super Alphabet". Please stop by and take a look. I would greatly appreciate in advance if you contribute but I totally understand if money is tight. If you could take a few minutes to post the link to other sites and possibly send it to friends who might be interested, that would help greatly and you would have my undying appreciation. Keeping my fingers crossed and working on the text for the interior of the book.
Here's the link:

Thanks,
Mike

Today's 15 minute sketch... "Hat of Torus"


This week's 15 minute Friday challenge is late in the day because I had to go kayaking in some beautiful weather... finally!
Up until today it's been cold and dark around these parts... we're calling it our Non-summer... and I've been wearing a chapeau, unlike the one Torus is wearing in the sketch...
