My dad once fainted when he saw a bit of blood on the bandages when I had my wisdom teeth removed. This from the man who when I get bloody knees or elbow scrapes blithely says, “proof you had an adventure kiddo.” My mom only slapped him once or twice because the nurses came in and got him all rigged up to machines. I was really scared for him and after three hours of waiting for his blood pressure to go back above 100, we both got what we wanted. To just go home.
Also, I’ve put up some new sketches on my tumblr. Go check it out by clicking above! And if you want to ask me (or Chapel!) a question, you can do so by clicking on the “ASK!” button at the top of the tumblr blog itself.
Hi, sweetie, howre you feeling?

SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAPITTY SLAP
Um. . . Mom? I think you can stop now.
Please Chapel, this is the only time I get to legally hit your father.
AND THATS FOR EVERY TIME YOU LEFT THE TOILET SEAT UP!

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
Find out every Wednesday!
The first story I read of yours was "Seventeen Across" in Stone Soup. (By the way, I've always wondered-- what was the answer to the crossword puzzle?) I started really following your work when I watched a video on the Stone Soup website of you painting an illustration, and it got me interested. And, after reading much of your blog, you also got me interested in the... what's it called? Scholastic Alliance for Young Writers and Artists. (Great job, by the way! I'm planning on submitting a book that I'm in the process of editing. I've probably edited it ten thousand times.)
I just love reading about young authors like me. This comment's probably getting a little lengthy, so I'll wrap it up. :)
For the life of me, i completely lost all my memories for 24 hours! I was told i was fully awake and such, but i don't know what i did then! it is really scary what dentist can do to people.
thankfully that was before Youtube was around or it could have been even more embarassing.
lastly, did you mom really slap your dad for petty things that he does Emma?
i assume smelling salts were not on hand at that time.
I hope he is doing alright now.
