The Mad Tomato

If you just read that title and thought nothing of it, then you probably don't know me too well. 
I am, unexpectedly, and probably to the absolute stun of the entire planet, part of a small team that will be soon publishing a children's book. 
This came to be from an interesting lunch between myself, Patience (my other half), and our friend Michelle Sodaro (www.michellesodaro.com). Michelle mentioned she had a strange dream, and that dream became our new reality. We've been working for a while on the whole project: story, characters, art, and formatting... and honestly I've fallen in love with the entire thing. Everything about it has been a creative outlet that I genuinely never expected to be a part of. 

Something about making a colorful image and putting basic text over it to tell a gentle story is... different? It's different in a good way, that's for sure. It's not as heavy as Dragonfly, and it kind of balances the scales. 

I love it... I love everything about it, and I'm proud of being part of Mad Tomato Books. The three of us have created something amazing. 

Thank you... to both of you for being part of this with me, and to everyone reading this for reminding me why I keep going.
