Free Fall Friday – Kudos and Teen Opportunity

Well, the first pages are on their way to agent Elena Giovinazzo at Pippin Properties. Check back next Friday for the results.

Here is a nice picture of Vesper Stamper (on left) in front of her illustrated storyboard. It was her first MFA illustration show at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I am sure she was excited to show off her work in the SVA main gallery. Congratulations Vesper!


Do you know a middle or high school student in the Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence, or Summit area in NJ? This might be just the thing to get them excited about the Arts. Make sure you spread the word.
