A Talk With Adam Rex
Nothing I like better than a good interview. Except maybe chocolate. God, I love chocolate. Sweet, delicious, forbidden chocolate (can you tell it's Lent?).
Back to interviews. One Ms. Kelly R. Fineman has a simply delicious (still stuck on chocolate) one-on-one with everyone's favorite illustrator Adam Rex. He also happens to create clay heads. Clay heads that I want. Clay heads that I, daresay, NEED. In this interview there's a very nice shout-out to my HMOCLification of Mr. Rex.
Betsy Bird over at Fuse #8 named you a Hot Man of Children's Literature in September, 2006. Has your life changed as a result and, if so, how?Ain't it the truth?
Well, the pageant was nice. But before you're crowned you don't realize how many library ribbon-cuttings and the like you'll be asked to attend.
The best news of the lot? In the wake of Hugo Cabret, Mr. Rex has his own illustrated novel coming out. It's called The True Meaning of Smekday. Oh, sweet awesomeness. Please check this interview out. It's remarkably amusing and I urge Ms. Fineman to do many others in the near future.
