I read My Life in France a couple of years ago, and LOVED it. It was the inspiration for the Child parts in the J&J movie, and is lovely and wonderful and sweet. I can't recommend it enough. And because I love them, I'll mention that the book includes a bunch of great photos of her, looking gorgeous and larger-than-life and Frenchy. Just lookit her!
My Wacom Cintiq 12wx arrived yesterday (thank you, pals, for the good advice on buying it!). I'm still fumbling my way through figuring it out, but it's mega cool. It's pretty sweet to see a line appear under my pen, and then to be able to "undo" it.
I've been using it flat on my desk, which is how I prefer to draw with paper. It's so naturally like tactile drawing that after spinning the stylus around to use the eraser side, I automatically brush my hand and blow air across the paper to rid it of eraser bits. But there aren't any eraser bits, because it's allll digital. Neat.
(I drew this on it.)
