    I am an Illustartion student in London and I am going to reference you in an essay, I was wondering if I could maybe answer you a few questions for me, in particular about Carnet de voyage. For example, on your website, you say that it is more on-the-spot then your other carefully constructed books but just how on-the-spot was it? How much of the imagery in the novel was actually done on site? Or was most of it developed from on site sketches into more final ink drawings? And if a lot of the ink drawings were done straight from life, were they then pieced together digitally on the computer to give the travelogue more of a structure and profesionalism? The reason I am asking is because our whole project has been about making drawings from life in peopled situations? And I was also wondering how you capture a scenery that is constantly moving (all those bustling Morrocan streets for example) without the use of photographs? Is it a matter of filling in gaps with imagination and focusing on different aspects individually?
    Ok well I would be very grateful if you could answer my questions, thank you for your attention and a Happy New Year!
    Best Regards,

    Happy New Year! The image is absolutely fantastic!

  23. Roger Still Says:

    What a powerful image–as someone who grew up as a fundamentalist Christian like you, and left the faith–this collage of images and words strikes home for me.

    Is this being published anywhere? If so, how do we acquire it?

    Thanks for this New Year’s gift….

    I’m a high school student in San Diego and I first want to say that I really like your book Blankets. My librarian bought the book and it was automatically a favorite to almost everyone at the school.( I read it in less than 3 hours) I just wanted to ask you if you considered making Blankets into an animated movie..I think it would be really awsome!!!

  27. Renton Says:
