Visit to Waterford Village Elementary

Last Thursday I had the great honor of being invited back to Waterford Village Elementary for the second time (and the first time was last year!). This is one of those schools that looked to pretty in the morning sunshine I had to take a snap.

The morning included a number of firsts, perhaps the most important being that one of my presentations focused on my new project, Miki Falls. I spilled the beans about many of the secrets in the first book, so now a select group of Michigan students (and almost no one else!) knows what Miki Falls is really all about. Speaking of Miki, I took a shot of the illustration I made of her. I also did a quick drawing of Anra, a character so closely tied to some of the secrets of the book I really can't say anything else at the moment!

Well, that's all 'til next time...

Wow! Now I really can't wait to read Miki Falls! (Anra is adorable, by the way.)

I just found your blog. My two oldest boys are big fans of yours (and I'm sure the youngest will be in time!), and we bought some of your books for their girl cousins. My oldest son just re-read 4 of your books (his class is doing a read-a-thon this month) and we recommend them to all our friends. Keep up the good work, your fans appreciate it!

Lately I have been reading a lot of manga and watching anime movies and I recently started drawing manga myself. I am in middle school and I LOVE your drawing tutorials and found them very helpful. I want to start working on writing my own manga graphic novel someday (I already came up with good characters and a plot). I also want to read Miki Falls soon but I can't find them anywhere so I think I might order them or ask for them for my birthday. I was so excited to find your blog because I am a HUGE fan of your youtube channel and I think you are a really great artist! Can't wait to read Miki Falls.

Greetings Mr. Crilley

I am honored to have found your tutorials and have to say that your instruction has done much to advance my self-taught artistic and illustrative abilities. You have a way of explaining what you do that defies comprehension and makes even the basic line a whole new world. For that I commend and thank you, as well as taking the immeasurable time to do so. As I am sure that your time is spread pretty thin between all your projects and a family, I make the following questions brief, but I do hope that you can find a moment to reply to them.

1. The last entry on this blog is from 3 years ago, and while I struggle with my own blog entries being consistent, I have to ask if you have abandoned this blog?

2. I recently borrowed your 4 books "Miki Falls" from our library, where I was SO excited to find that they carried them. ^_^ Your story is incredible!! I am only half way through the 2nd book (SUMMER) and I am amazed! So my question to you is there a way that you could do a video (or post a blog entry) regarding the story creation process? I have a very active and wild imagination, but I find that piecing together a story to be...a challenge. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I have come to hold a deep respect for you and your opinions.

Thank you for your time Sir, and I pray you and your family all the greatest joy in the world for the joy that you have brought this world.

Respectfully,
Karl J. Kabelis
