Ice-Cream Monster Toon Cafe

Ice-Cream Monster Toon Cafe

Here's a cool blog by an animator.
I found it through the A Doodle A Day blog, where his pen and ink work is posted and created prolifically. Check out his pen and ink drawings. He uses many different pens, styles and ink techniques.

There's a brand new Children's Media Forum online called The Children's Media Professionals Community. You can join for free and take part in online discussions here. I just signed up. It looks promising.

This weekend was an emotional one with highs and lows.
An acquaintance of ours, a young teacher at our kid's school, lost her young husband to a tragic car accident on a road I travel daily. She and her husband were so young, vibrant, in love, with a 6 month old baby. It's been hitting me very hard, even though she was not a close friend of mine. Things happen so quickly.
Give a hug to your loved ones. Give each other grace, and be patient with those around you. Take time to listen.

Then..that same afternoon, we took off for a wonderful weekend at a family camp with many families from our church. What a joy it was to take time away from the hectic pace of school, sports, and all the electronic blaring noises and distractions. The camp was in West Virginia and was a beautiful, peaceful place to play, eat, talk and listen.
