This is why I love the Internet (besides the fact that you can use words to link to things in blog posts, as I have done to excess in the next sentence): a very friendly and talented author/illustrator named Jonathan Auxier sent me an email and told me that he had, as part of some Photoshopping practice, created a digital painting based on the quotes in my last blog post about the "Library of the Future" kid's essay contest.
Jonathan gave me permission to share the picture here, and I'm so glad, because it's awesome:
He even included plane parking, the purple chairs, the 90,000 computers, and my personal favorite, those darn robot librarians. Amazing! Thank you, Jonathan!
(Side note: my last blog post also got a mention on AL Direct, which made me very proud. And that's all the blatant self-promotion I'll do today, I promise.)
