Harts Pass No. 255

Kids at summer camp. Parents... still trying to adjust!


Summer reading rolls!

With design input from the audience, here are three more heroes for the North Central Regional Library Summer Reading Program. Six visits next week - which means six more heroes to come! And I'll get some of the kid's cartooning posted here soon well :)


NCRL Summer Reading!

The start of summer = the start of Summer Reading, and this week I kicked things off in style with visits to the Twisp, Tonasket, and Oroville branches of the North Central Regional Library system. "Every Story has a Hero" and "Unmasked!" are the season's themes, so I'll be sharing new story news, pondering the similarities between creating comics and picture books, and leading cartooning workshops this June and July. The library kids and I will also create a NCRL Hero mascot for each of the 16 branches that I visit - "YES!" 

To wit, Twisp's most excellent new Hero team: BUZZ & BUZZY!
(Stay tuned for others within a day or two of each visit - and colored versions too!)


Harts Pass No. 254

Nothing wrong with being No. 2, although an article in this week's Methow Valley News speaks to renewed public support for the reintroduction of Grizzlies (Dangerous N.A. Mammal numero Uno!) to the North Cascades. Showdown baby!


Harts Pass No. 253

This one pretty much explains itself. Hard to believe that Kit is moving on to middle school! :(


Sketches: Elephrump!

Just a doodle. 
Nothing more. 
Elephrump upon the floor!


Happy Book Birthday, Tino Tortoise!

TINO THE TORTOISE: Adventures in the Grand Canyon hits the shelves today! The author, Carolyn Ahern, did and AMAZING job with setting up a website for the book, so be sure to check it out and cross your fingers for more Tino adventures in the not to distant future :)


Harts Pass No. 252 - Guest Cartoonist No. 2

Another great comic courtesy of 5th grade guest cartoonist, Stella Gitchos. Looking forward to more comic creativity at both this week's Methow Valley Elementary Young Writer's Conference and throughout the summer in my North Central Regional Library summer reading visits. Write on!
