First of all: thanks loads!
I work at American Legacy Publishing, the makers of Studies Weekly a newspaper-like resource for elementary school teachers. We mainly focus on state history (we do a paper for just about every state i think... well more than half). We also have a science, national history, geography, and soon, math. It's fun. I do get to be creative, but i also have to do a lot of "matching style" type things, adding elements to existing drawings, or putting new heads or costumes on things. And backgrounds. New backgrounds.
Anyway, i'm just grateful to be working as an artist at all. Thanks for your interest!
