Happy Birthday, Em and Val!

A couple of my favorite story artists had birthdays this month. Today is Emma Coats' birthday. She's an artistic gunslinger: quick at the draw and real good with horses. So good that I usually just bring my sketches to her when I need a horse filled in.

Last week was Valerie LaPointe's birthday. A cowgirl in her own right, Val did the scratch dialogue for Jessie in Toy Story 3. So she's got the whole actress-artist double threat going on.

She made a graphic novel called Mermaids in the Desert, and I can't think of a better way to describe Val!

Happy birthday you little pilgrims, here's to many happy returns!
