Ho hum another day OH LOOK a present from the postie, what joy awaits?
Probably another rejection letter from a publishing companwait a minute
I know that handwriting, and that fish.
AND THAT CROSSHATCHING
OH BOY OH GEE
I MEAN NO BIG DEAL just Chris Riddell the world famous illustrator and current Children’s Laureate responding to me sending him a copy of my doofy comic with a bunch of pictures and a one-off drawing and letter on really nice paper I mean it’s completely normal for that to happen
nbd right I’m cool this is totally cool
okay but seriously, thank you chrisriddellblog I am so very honoured that you took the time to do this for me because gosh you are a busy busy man. I’m very glad if you liked the book, and thank you for all the work you do!
so in case you needed further proof of there being magic in the world I GOT A BOX OF JOY FROM A TPoH READER I’VE NEVER MET OR SPOKEN TO AND I LOVE THEM and you should totally check out their fantastic Etsy shop Bookworm Plushies because they make the most adorable little plush toys LIKE A LITTLE PINK LIE AND AN ACTUAL MINI MODDIE DOLL???!?
sorry I was out all day today (for once in my entire goddamn life) so no doodles but one of my pals is doing an animation and is sort of rotoscoping/hybrid photo manip-ing it and asked me to do three frames for her bc and I quote “you got cartoon eyes you do the big eye part”
