Since the last Epistle, I started work on the illustrations to the follow-up to my middle grade book, FAB (Friends Against Bullying) Club. If you want to be part of my advance reading team and receive an illustrated chapter of the book every week you can sign up at Tiny Letter.
I’m a little late in writing, because I just got back from a road trip to the top of the South Island to see my good friend, Jane. She and her husband run an illustration, photography and design business in Mapua, about 430 km (267 miles) from Lyttelton.
New Zealand doesn’t do long distance public transport very well, so there is no train route and no easy way to get to Mapua by bus. Google thinks it is a 5 and a half hour drive in total, so I packed some of my CDs to sing along to:
You can see all of my reasons to be cheerful at my Doodle Diary.
