By far, though, my favorite piece of conference swag has been this Penguin magnet. #txla14

So I’m doing a presentation in my Materials for Young Adults class next week on tumblr and fanart*. Specifically, it’s a project about developing a library program to encourage book fanart and using social media to post said fanart. I’m really, really excited for this project. Grad school is awesome. 

So what I want to know from y’all is if there are any fanart blogs related to books or YA lit that you follow and think I should know about. I’ve already got a ton of links, but I want to make sure I’m not missing anything. Thoughts?

*Fanart? Fan art? Is there a general consensus on this?

To be fair, it was very late last night when I made this and I thought it was hilarious. 

(I still think it’s hilarious.)

Wondermark #889; The Seeds of a Series

I still have a copy of The Turnips of Progress somewhere. About fifty pages in, that ghostwriter just said “screw it, I’m writing Marxist erotica” and it. Gets. WEIRD.

Here’s a new thing I’ll try now and then! Same comics, reformatted into a square format to be legible and fit nicely on blogs and Tumbls. This one is even a little early, HOW ABOUT THAT

Wondermark—greatest webcomic ever?

If you’re going to hit on me while I’m eating lunch and reading my book, don’t tell me that you don’t like to read. It’s not going to get you very far.
