So far I’m really enjoying Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle…
I’m thrilled to share a series of posters I illustrated for Strand Book Store in New York celebrating Banned Books Week (Sept. 22nd-28th)! I’ll be posting one of these illustrations every day this week just to remind you that banned books are the best books.
Thanks to art director Lisa Jee!

I mean, I usually ride my dragon to work, doesn’t every librarian?
We prefer griffons in Pickerington, but dragons are good, too.
As an actual dragon librarian, I am confused by this statement.
"Publishers are like, ‘We don’t know who your market is, we don’t know who we’d sell your book to,’ and I’m like, ‘What do you mean? Like… People with reading skills?’"- Roxane Gay, talking about writers of color at the “This Woman’s Work” panel at the 2014 Brooklyn Book Festival (via yeahwriters)
