The children. They own my heart. <3

When children are using their own money to fund my #WhatifKickstarter? You know you are part of something that is being created from the magic of the Universe.

These two children and their parents have my heart and soul. They met me via my weekly Wednesday Storytime Lives and I was lucky enough to meet them in person one time when I happened to be in a city an hour from where they lived. Their parents drove in rush hour traffic after work and school to have dinner with me. It was magical. I still have our hangman games in my sketchbook we played while waiting for our pizza.

Heart vs. Brain. The Struggle is REAL, y’all.

“WHAT THE HECK, HEART. WHY DO YOU DO THESE THINGS?!?! Are you MAD, WOMAN?” yells Michelle’s brain.

“Because I said I would.” whispers Michelle’s heart. “Because I told children and parents and everybody I would make cartoons. And I will. Somehow. No matter what. Because when I make a promise to a kid, I keep it.”

“GAH!!! You promise TOO MUCH! You never think things out! And now just look at what you’ve gotten us into! Ugh. And I’m the one who has to do all the work!!”

Brain stomps away.

“I know. I’m sorry.” Heart goes after Brain and gently put her hand on Brain’s back.” But you know it always works out, right? C’mon, you know…” Heart smiles at Brain.

“Sigh. I know. But…can’t you ever just REST? Can’t you ever NOT do big, giant things? Let me maybe just…enjoy life a bit?” grumbles Brain.

Heart’s lip trembles. Tears well up in her eyes.

“Oh, now don’t cry. You’re gonna make me cry. Okay, okay, you’re right. It’s a lot of work but yes, it does always work out. I just…worry. It’s a lot of money. And we have two kids in college…But you’re right! It will be AMAZING. Cartoons…just think of it! YES! Let’s get those graphics done!”

“Thank you Brain. I really need you to trust me on this one. I won’t lead you wrong. Promise.” Heart hugs Brain.

“You never, do Heart, you never do.” Brain sighs and smiles at Heart.


I’m writing this to get the words and emotions swirling in my head out so that I can get back to work. I have a lot to do and not much time to do it. Paintings to paint, graphics to create, school visits to prepare for.

And oh yeah, raise thousands of dollars to make a cartoon pitch. Cause that’s how I roll, apparently. Someone says to me 7 weeks ago, “Hey, you ever thought about making your books into cartoons?”

And suddenly here I am needing a crazy amount of money.

I need to raise $40,000 to get a cartoon pitch produced. And that? Is a LOT of money. I know. I started a Kickstarter campaign to do it. Sure, it says we need 25K, but what we really need is 40K and if we don’t raise that amount? I need to come up with 15K on my own.

Does that give you some anxiety? Butterflies in your tummy? Yeah. I have supersonic steroid doping butterflies knocking around MY insides.

But now that my Heart and my Brain are on the same page? I GOT THIS.

P.S. But if it so moves you? Feel free to donate a little something to my Kickstarter. That’d be SWELL. 🙂

“Or if you work at a bank? Maybe you can hook me up with a sweet interest rate on a small business loan. Ya know, just in case.”- Michelle’s Brain.
