The latest adddition to the Gallery page is a wall clock: COSMIC EYEBALL WALL CLOCK. It works!

THE WALL

Thanks to all the kids at Paterson Elementary School in Newington for their attentiveness and enthusiasm, and thanks to Jessi Dalton and everyone in the Media Center for all the organizing and hospitality. I really enjoyed my visit. I think my favorite part was brainstorming story ideas with the kids. The fourth graders came up with the idea of a story about a mysterious gigantic wall. Of course this is just the beginning of the story!

BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL

This is one of the sketches from the Brooklyn Book Festival. There were a few dozen tables outdoors, each under its own canopy, and I was scheduled to sign copies of our newest book, Scarlett, at the Papercutz table. Susan couldn't make it. I always feel a little uncomfortable looking out at the passers-by like a hopeful beagle waiting for a bone, so instead I brought along the portable easel that I use for school visits, and a pad of 18 x 24 paper and did sketches while waiting for customers. Sven, the marketing guy for Papercutz, would then alert me whenever someone wanted to buy a book, and I would turn around and sign their book and give them a free sketch. I don't know if I sold any more books this way, but it was more fun for me.

NO DRONES

Jon Buller recently had a job that was an interesting change, assisting conceptual artist/photographer Louise Lawler prepare a new show of her work for Metro Pictures gallery in New York. Louise is best known for taking photographs of other peoples art. For her latest show she wanted some of her photographs transformed into line drawings, and she entrusted the job of tracing the photographs to Jon. For those of you who may have missed the opening in June, here is the video. A No Drones "coloring book" with a dozen images from the show has also been published and is available for $10 from Printed Matter.

 

SUSAN'S STORY

We recently received an email from Samantha Bennett, who is a student in the education program at the University of Georgia. She said that she had been doing some research for one of her classes on our books, and was having trouble finding biographical information about Susan. Here is Susan's answer to that email.

NEW LONDON DAY INTERVIEW

This was our first multimedia interview! The reporter came to our house without any notebook, and without a still camera. She only shot video. All of the quotations in the print article, and all of the still photographs, were taken from the video. Since Susan Schade is highly allergic to interviews, let alone video interviews, Jon Buller got to play the windbag all by himself. Here is the link.
