Going off the walls...

It seems like my most popular post on this blog hasn't been about my books or anything; it's been about my dining room's chalkboard walls.

Well, this weekend the family had a big erase and re-draw, so I thought I'd share.

Seeing as it's April, we thought this time the theme should be "waiting for the bus in the rain". A sub theme of "really, really weird" also seemed to emerge. Again, the whole family collaborated (which is a fancy word for drew all over each others' doodles), so it's really hard to tell whose is whose...

Here's a wide shot of the dining room:

The bus stop. Note the fire-beast is first in line. The cloud above him seems to really be enjoying herself...

Speaking of clouds, here's a man with his head in them...

I love the fish in the plane window:

Above the entrance to the living room is always a sort of crest of arms for the room's theme.

Awww, sad cloud.

The creature to the right is a cloud-beast blowing wind and growing legs. He has facial hair, too. The alien is happy because of her force-shield.


A big family draw is always fun, even if you do it on paper, not walls. Why not give it a try!

Oh, and more good news. Thanks to you, Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed hangs on for the 13th week in the New York Times Bestseller List, at #8. Thanks, you.
