Presidential Polar Bear Post Card Project No. 94 - 2.25.16

For my 94th post card, I'm taking a little trip down memory lane -- to 1994 and the year that I graduated from college. Carleton was a great place. A small liberal arts school in south central Minnesota. Not exactly polar bear territory, and maybe not the typical start for a children's book author/illustrator, but it was an experience of community and friendship, participation and expectation that I wouldn't trade for the world. I walked away on that fine June afternoon with a Studio Art degree and a teaching certificate. Nothing "rockstar" and glamorous for sure, but a solid foundation built on something tangible, connected, and considered. From there, the skies the limit!
