One Thing On My Mind: February 4th



So many comics won awards at the ALA Midwinter Meeting this year. My jaw hit the floor when I saw that a graphic novel won the Caldecott for the first time. The news has been fanning the flames of words + pictures that burn in my heart. I took a break from making comics to write an illustrated YA novel (which I love) but the return back to writing my newest graphic novel felt like coming home.
