Hi all,

I'm having fun participating in Inktober, an annual October event in which artists over the world take on a challenge to do one ink drawing a day the entire month. It's not too late to start participating! See the rules here.

I love this kind of art challenge because it not only helps motivate me to draw for fun every day, but I love the community aspect. I found out about the challenge from my friend Russ Cox; do check out his Instagram feed for his wonderful Inktober drawings. Last year, one of the drawings he posted reminded me so much of how I see myself...and he gave it to me! You can see the drawing in this interview I did with Russ on Inkygirl.

Chuck Sambuchino wrote a guest post on my blog about five literary agents who are looking for picture book manuscripts right NOW.

Curious about how picture books get translated? I interviewed Jonathan Lyons and Sarah Perillo of Curtis Brown (my agency) about the process.

To my fellow Canadians: Have a great Canadian Thanksgiving weekend!
