first timer


A package arrived the other day, inside were the f&g's for 'The Wonder Book', by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by yours truly.

This career I've chosen is one step closer to feeling real.

(For the perplexed: f&g's stand for folded and gathered, an unbound proof of a book)

Congratulations, paul! I can't wait to see your books when they're out. I'll need a new bookshelf to hold them all.

Wahoo! Streamers and fireworks! Martha's right, I too have started building my new Paul Schmid bookshelf. I flat out can not wait to see this book.

You guys are too nice! But now that you mention it, my studio is so small I doubt I'll have room for my own books when it comes to that.

We'll be more than happy to find a spot for them. Got just the place. Congratulations.

Congratulations, man! What are we doing about your local book tour? I know lots of peeps chomping at the bit to celebrate with you. Want to have a planning powwow at The Bohemian?
