Flip from Flip & Fin came to Books of Wonder!
Books of Wonder Event for Flip & Fin! This Saturday!
Hey folks! This Saturday (August 23rd) I’ll be at Books of Wonder with Dan Yaccarino, Edward Hemingway, and Margie Palatini. And a very special appearance from FLIP THE SANDSHARK! And SHARK PICTIONARY! And JOKES! 1-3pm.
The first four people who come out will get a message in a bottle from author Timothy Gill! (who is unfortunately stranded at sea). Just say, “Hey! I saw this on neilnumberman.com, and I’d like my message in an olde timey bottle from author Timothy Gill, who is sadly stranded at sea! Can I have it?! Can I?!” Verbatim please.
So come on out and join us! Event info!
A four-pager for Competitor Magazine
Hey now! I worked on four spreads for Competitor’s latest issue. Here are three of ‘em. It’s an article about Runner’s Habits. I identify with the chafer on the third spread, fyi. –NN
WATCH Carousel for Kids!!
Have you been wondering what the heck Carousel for Kids is? Well, guess who hasn’t. EVERYONE WHO’S ATTENDED. But– and this is an exclusive offer (no it isn’t)– here is the complete video of Carousel for Kids at MoCCA this year! Watch R. Sikoryak and his clever take on Tom Sawyer and his Live Drawing! See James Kolchalka and his Nickelodeon comics of yesteryear. Behold Trade Loeffler’s fantastic tale of onomatopoeias! And Absorb my reading of the latest chapter in THE ADVENTURES OF STEGOSAURUS!
It was standing room only over in the weirdest room I’ve ever performed in (well, not as weird as the room I performed in at Rubulad, actually.) And, as an added bonus– now this is crazy– here is the entire comic that I performed, right here! STEGOSAURUS vs. HANGNAIL!!
I illustrated an entire Children’s Book in FIFTEEN DAYS
And boy are my arms tired. No, seriously, my arms are really tired. So this was a monumental task. Johnson & Johnson hired me to illustrate a children’s book written by elementary student Rene and “children’s author” Patricia Larkin. Then the book was printed professionally, and presented to him and his parents. There were other artists too making other books, I guess. Watch the Video here! Get your pancakes out, because there’s a ton of sap! See my book come in around the 1:50 mark.
Anyway, it was very rewarding. To download the book, among others, go here. For every book that’s downloaded, they’ll print an actual copy and donate it to a school library so others can be inspired to care. Or so their website says. So download it!– Neil Numberman!
My HIGHLIGHTS pieces thus far. Enjoy!
