Hi everyone, I'd like to introduce you to one of my favorite sequential art teachers. (Which is saying something. The SCAD Sequential Art professors were art gods. Their talent infectious, inspiration astounding.) And the founder of SCAD's Sequential Art program: Bob Pendarvis.

Bob was key in my getting the Sea Princess Azuri book deal.

He was the one who spoke to the editors on my behalf when they were waffling over the fact I was still a student. And he gave me the support I needed after I began. Art critiques, pep talks, you name it.

So to say that he cares about his students and their success, well, that's an understatement.

And he's a champion of getting women into the comics industry. Bob worked hard to make sure his classes and the entire Sequential Art major was female-friendly. (And this was back in the day before manga became popular. Imagine the difficulties.) He's helped place soooo many girls into successful art careers.

He's not teaching anymore (alas!), instead he's working on his own graphic novels: A Girl Called Ana Teaches Kittens How to Draw.

These are for young girls, aimed at teaching not just the basics of art and how to draw comics, but that it's absolutely okay and awesome for girls to like comics too, with a lot of fun adventures inbetween.

It's totally cute, I can't wait to see it in print. That's why I'm donating a color commission to his Kickstarter Rewards list.

(Or this link should take you directly to my pledge thing there, I think: www.kickstarter.com/projects/4… )

Did you hear that guys? A full color commission of a character (possibly characters) of your choice, at a pledge level of $150!

I haven't opened up commissions in forever, so please hop on over and grab it while you can! Or, if you like, snap up one of the commissions slots off the huge list of other talented artists! ^_____^

Alas if only I had the money to spare. :p but then I'm already lucky enough to have a couple pieces from you, one of which is from way back when in our high school days.
