I love reading, writing, illustrating and making books. This week at
Sketchbook Skool, Jill Weber* challenged us to make a book that shares something about ourselves — so I tackled the monkey.
I’m not terribly good at crafty things as I am clumsy and impatient but this was a very fun project. See the process and results in this video:
I am nearing the end of my week working with students at the International School of Kuala Lumpur. It’s been a great experience and I think I’ve probably learned more than the kids. Here are a few photos and drawings from the week so you can see what I’ve been up to.

I’ve been here before. Soon I won’t be. I’ll be flying to Kuala Lumpur.

Many of the students have lived in many different countries. I can relate. I show them a map of my own childhood peregrinations.

KL’s Chinatown is seedy but colorful.
There’s a Chinese graveyard next to the school.
There’s a Hindu grave next to the school too. Boo!
