Jamie is published!
Jamie's drawing of a shark at the Newport Aquarium was chosen to be one of the illustrations in a book called Cincinnati- Our City, Our Story, that was done as a benefit for Every Child Succeeds. His drawing was picked after being submitted by his art teacher to and organization called Storytellers Project. The Storytellers Project was designed to create a children's book by bringing together the hipster YP's of the C-Change leadership development program with children's book author Louise Borden along with support from many others who agreed that this was a fantastic project.

Cincinnati Our City, Our Story, was written to express civic pride in our dear city and highlights local landmarks with illustrations drawn by young Cincinnatians, ages 7-13.
Author and illustrator happily review the finished, published book.
I think that Jamie was correct in wanting to look stylish for the book release party, his signature bow tie works well for all literary occasions.
As you can imagine, most of you will be receiving the book as a Christmas gift from Karl and I, but if you would like to purchase one before the holidays, please visit the very best children's bookstore ever...Blue Manatee Booksellers in Oakley.
