Dedication



















Today I sent a copy of I AM MY GRANDPA'S ENKELIN to my son's teacher, a gift to his classroom. My son attends a private Christian school, so this book — a Christian title — makes a perfect addition to the classroom. I plan to give a copy to the library as well.

On the copyright page, my dedication reads as follows (omitting the name of the school): To the students, teachers, parents, and administrators of Xxxxxxxxxx Christian School.

Funny. I've only shared my copies of this book with a couple coworkers and my wife, all of whom joked with me about my getting a chance to illustrate Caucasians. A white coworker joked: "Don! They're letting you illustrate white people now!" Lol! I enjoy illustrating African American characters, cars, elephants, corn — everything. Except for maybe spiders.

Just waving hello Don and checking out that Blogger now supports LiveJournal identities. Woohoo! Now we need to get LJ to support Blogger.
