July’s Best Books from Amazon and iBooks Plus Reminder

REMINDER: Look what Mike Ciccotello sent me – his Rabbit Doodle Cup. Today is the last day to leave him a comment on last Saturday’s post to get in the drawing for one of his original doodle cups. THANKS MIKE!

Here is the link: You can also Tweet, talk about it on Facebook, or reblog by the end of today.


Yesterday Lori Keehner was featured on Illustrator Saturday. I forgot to tell everyone that you have until next Sunday to leave a comment, etc. to win a ceramic mug with one of her illustrations on it.
