Immaculate Devil







































A friend and I have been meeting for coffee to draw.  We'll each show up with two descriptive words, then mix them all together in our sketchbooks.  I brought the words 'immaculate' and 'multiple'.  He brought the words 'devil' and 'transformation'.  This was my solution.

He Eats Teacups


My Favorite Animal 

by Fabian Luna (826 Student) 

What is your favorite animal called? 

Big Paul. 


Describe your favorite animal? What does it look like?
It is round. Its tail is swirly and twirls. Chubby, funny. Its skin color is pink. 

How does your favorite animal act?  What does it do that makes it so cool?  
Strange, wild.  He eats tea cups and bubble gum and he likes talking a lot.  Likes to sing and plays piano.  He likes to jump high walls. 

Tells us a story! In this story, you bring your favorite animal to 826LA. Describe the day!
One day I brought my Big to 826LA. He was really shy at the first time but then he jumped up and landed on the store and he made a big mess up on the front and I had to clean up.

I helped organize a tribute for Dan Santat's Beekle win earlier this month.  We all designed our own version of the Caldecott medal, then plastered them over one of his books.  Check us out!
