Thank You!

Thank you everyone that helped me reach my kickstarter goal!!! My campaign still has a few days to go, but I’ve reached and exceeded my goal, which makes it possible for me to begin printing!  Thanks so much for your support!

Featured Kickstarter: Teaching evolution with animations, Stated Clearly

I’m beginning to feature various Kickstarter projects starting with this brilliant project by the folks at Stated Clearly.  With the mission of promoting “the art of critical thinking by exposing people from all walks of life, to the simple beauty of science,”  Stated Clearly explains “complicated scientific topics” through short animations.  Stated Clearly’s videos break down complex scientific topics in a way that makes them tangible, and relatable without oversimplifying or discarding the science.

Stated Clearly on Kickstarter

Stated Clearly is currently running a Kickstarter Campaign for a project that involves “teaching the science of Genetics and Evolution through animations”.  The final project will consist of 21 short animations that “teach genetics and evolution to the greater public in simple friendly language.”

Major updates to text

I made some major updates to the text in Eggs, Frogs, and Pollywogs today.  After receiving from fantastic advice from an editor, I decided to convert give the story more rhythm.  As it was, some of it rhymed, some didn’t, and it was jarring when it didn’t flow.  Now it all seems to flow… I hope, feel free to provide feedback!
