Miracle Wimp doodles

Doodles from Miracle Wimp

When I sold Miracle Wimp, Little, Brown wanted someone else to illustrate it. I wanted to be the one to do that, since it’s my story. I turned in these drawings to show what I wanted to do. I had to point out that a polished illustrator wouldn’t make sense, as the narrator is a teenager. So, my argument was basically, “people would believe a kid would draw this badly,” and it worked.

Oh really?
