Why did the Owl make everyone laugh?

Dear Readers,
Hello again!  I've actually managed to blog again within a week!  Hopefully I can keep this up.  As I mentioned last week, a friend and I are taking part in The Sketchbook Project.  You have to choose a theme, and I chose the theme Why did the Owl make everyone laugh?  

I have been working on this now for about 2 weeks, tossing different ideas around.  Finally one night I just sat down and wrote a very simple story about why the owl made everyone laugh, and what happened to him.  It only took me about a half hour to write- its a very simple story, but it makes me smile.  I'll post pieces of it as I illustrate each page.

Here are some images of the title page of my book---

Here is where I need your help!  I typed up the story, and I'm trying to decide if I should just cut and paste the printed words in (as above) or hand write them.  I would love some feedback and ideas on this!

Thanks for your support-(and hopefully comments!!! )
I can't wait to show you more!

It's been awhile!

Dear Readers,
I must apologize- I pulled up the blogger site and realized I haven't posted since October!  But I have been busy making art!  Here Goes....

Art Updates:
1.Well, my art was in the Art FX gallery for about three months- I sold one painting!  Unfortunately, they closed in December.  But still, I called it a success!!

 2. I've been in the process of writing a children's story- I haven't written a story since high school!  It's about a hedgehog who goes on a quest to defeat an evil cat. :)  Stay tuned for pictures!

3. My friend and I are doing a sketchbook competition together!  Its called the Sketchbook Project and it involves filling a sketchbook and sending it to a museum in New York, where it will be on display. One of my pages will also be printed in a book!  You can find out all about it here:
The Sketchbook Project

I will try to be better about updating my blog- check back in a week for pictures of my new sketchbook!!! (And maybe a few pictures of a hedgehog! ):)

Thanks for reading :)
