Blogging has been scarce in apartment 513. Mostly because it a flurry of activity, no not for holidays, but for one big FAT holiday around the world. But in the spirit of moving I am finishing projects.
In January 2009 Tompaul left to go to England/Sudan. It was extremely traumatic for me. Not because he left (he does that occasionally) but because he went to Sudan (freaky) and because I had just burned my hand (third degree with cellulitis). I couldn’t see patients. I was a MESS. I think only a very few people (my family) know exactly how bad it was.
Tompaul felt bad too. One night he wrote me a story, which I read every day. So for Valentine’s day that year I decided to illustrate it. Now you may be saying, “Lisa, you can’t draw.” Nope. But I can create things out of paper. I just finished the very last page yesterday. Everything (except for the handwriting of the story and the pupils of the bears) below is made out of paper.
Without further ado I bring you the Story of the Lisa Bear. Written by Tompaul Wheeler and illustrated by Lisa Hermann.
