Oliver and Friends

I got to meet the amazing Oliver Jeffers today!
"Oliver who?" you ask. Oliver Jeffers! One of the most super amazing artist/authors in the world!
Plus, he has an awesome moustache! I think it has magical powers.

Seriously, check out his brilliance here-

He was appearing at Mrs. Nelson's Books where he gave a wonderful presentation that included him redrawing his books as his friend read them and a paper airplane flying competition!

I carpooled out to the event with my amazing artist pals James Burks and Dan Santat. And while we were there, we got to hang out with a couple of cool new pals, Alethea Allarey, Alyson Beecher, and Candace Ryan.

I'd try to give a better description of the event but Alethea does a great job on her blog-

I was lucky enough to snag a couple of Oliver's drawings and get him to sign a few books.

Needless to say, it was an awesome and inspiring afternoon! Now, pardon me as I go try to grow a magical moustache!
