Event Description

I love to make ABC books… like the kind you see for children, but instead of the usual “A is for Apple,” I like to use obscure words not usually found in a child’s ABC book, like “A is for Anxiety,” “B is for “Bacchanalia,” “C is for Chihuahua,” etc. Please join me in creating this masterpiece of whimsy! 

To be clear: you create one page of anything starting with your letter. The size of your page doesn't matter. 

Then you send me your page and I add it to my ABC book.

Then I photograph/scan the page and post it online for all to enjoy.

Contact me and let me know what letter you want to do, or I can assign you one. I will post the works you send me on IUOMA, and I will also create a special “online show” on a separate blog.

Send work through the mail or digitally.
