Laying It Out

Hello All,

 Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them. -Joseph Joubert

I finally tackled the layout of the book, it is SO exciting to see it all coming together! I still have to add photos and text. Thank you Kristan Campbell for writing such a touching forward!

Slow and Steady Wins The Race

Hello Everyone,

I know you are all anxiously waiting for the release of my book. I assure you it is in the works. The project turned out to be a lot bigger than I anticipated but It is getting there. Hidemi Yokota, my biggest contributor will have his reward (his likeness on a huge canvas soon) ! My painting is en route to Tokyo. I can't wait to hear how Demi likes it!

Thank You all for your patience!

Checking In. I Really Miss You All!

In the beginning stages of this project I heard from so many of you, I really enjoyed talking to so many of you, I miss it. I have been working non-stop so it has been hard for me to post updates as often as I was. I made a little video message for you to assure you that the book and the rewards are indeed  coming along just fine. I hope you all had a happy holiday and are looking forward to a happy and healthy new year like I am.
