    i’ve been reading the blog/vlog of john and hank green, brothers who decided to communicate textlessly for the year of 2007, and became so popular that they’ve kept at it since! they are hilariously funny–hank is the man behind, and john is a wonderful young adult lit author who has already won the printz award (YA award the equivalent of the newbery or caldecott) once, and had a second book be honorable mention for it. pretty snazzy for a guy who has only published two books and is the tender age of 30. or 31. next book comes out in september. but anyway, they are a good time and good resource. they can be found at youtube by looking for vlogbrothers.

Her art is see all over in the NW, and I think she’s “big” in Australia somehow too. Gotta love the internet!
