Czech out this cover for Black String--in the Czech Republic

Czech it out. Other than the slight misspelling of my last name, I'm kind of excited to have this sitting on my bookshelf. Also excited to have it sitting in Prague bookstores.

A short film on Beautiful Angle, a street art project I cofounded with Lance Kagey

The talented Paul Cross Blanchard recently created a short film about Beautiful Angle, the street art project I cofounded 14 years ago with my dear friend, Lance Kagey. Check it out.

This film focuses on the creation and distribution of a poster we made with guest artist Stan Shaw, an illustrator with serious chops. It features the camerawork of photographer Tom Owen and filmmaker Nathan Blanchard.

Be sure to pay attention to the musicality of the piece--how Paul uses sounds and editing to create such a tight story.

An official contract for The Bottle Imp of Bright House

Contracts are signed. Publication scheduled. Deal announced in Children's Bookshelf.

Check it out:

On her Facebook page, my agent, the esteemed Abigail Samoun said,

"So happy to see this deal announced in Children's Bookshelf. Big congrats to our Tom Llewellyn. This was one of those delicious manuscripts I couldn't stop reading until I got to the very last page--and this while I was eight months pregnant with Rowan and prone to long mid-day naps. — with Tom Llewellyn."

I'm pretty happy, too. Thanks Abi. Thanks Kelly Loughman. Thanks Holiday House.
