With a strong, working draft in-hand, our newest adventure is to locate an Illustrator who can take the story to the next… Continue reading The Rough Draft Road
We did it! We sent our beloved little shopping cart out into the world! After a wonderful festival run, where we picked up some pretty nifty awards, we are ready for our next adventure!
