In honor of having met one of my big inspirations, Gene Luen Yang, I was inspired to include him in the growing list of diverse characters within The Wonderous World. Each has their own distinct history, and are all practitioners of the wonderous science. I'd tell you more, BUT I WANT YOU TO GET THE BOOK! Nobody likes spoilers. :) Let's just say that his abilities come from his boundless imagination, and are quite extraordinary. Enjoy! Please remember to share and support the Kickstarter – we're almost there folks. #TheWonderousScience #BelieveInWonder #diversityinpublishing
OMG!!!! I got to meet Gene Luen Yang!! What an incredible, talented, and gracious individual. His presentation was great, and what a crowd. I got my Avatar books signed, asked him a question in front of a theater with hundreds of people, and give him my card and a promo for The Wonderous Science. It's great to meet your heroes, especially when they end up being as great as you imagined them. #diversityinpublishing #authorgoals
We are quickly approaching the half-way mark on the Kickstarter, and I have to say that I am super proud to be bringing this book to you. This is the culmination of years of imagining, and pulls together all of the stories I've ever wanted to tell. Thank so much for supporting The Wonderous Science and purchasing books and rewards. As a special treat for everyone that has put $25 or more towards the campaign, you will be receiving a limited edition print of the art from BOOK 2 OF MYSTERIES OF THE LAUREL SOCIETY....THE MIRACULOUS ELEMENTS!! The art is still in the works, but will be revealed at the release of The Wonderous Science – so exciting!!
Once again, thank you everybody for Believing In Wonder, and be sure to share the Kickstarter on social media. I'm talking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat, MySpace?, whatever!! We have a couple more weeks to make this happen. Also remember that your donations to the book will help keep Believe In Wonder doing the work of sharing creativity, imagination, and the joy of stories with the young and young at heart.

My presentation on the art life and entrepreneurship at Mississippi State University Art Department went amazing! It was so great to be back walking the halls and studios of my undergrad home. I got the chance to meet some incredibly talented art students just about to graduate out into the world, as well as rub elbows with my former professors and talk about when I was a green young artist. What an honor! #BelieveInWonder
