It was such a thrill to appear at the Melbourne Writers Festival this week! As part of the Schools' Program, I had a blast sharing drawing tips with budding artists and twisting soppy old stories into Epic Fail Tales with the help of the cheering student audience. It's always a good sign when the kids are already drawing and writing as they're leaving the presentation! Great to see creativity in action. Hope my message - Keep Drawing, Keep Reading, Keep Writing - stays with them.
