New Review from DSJM Reviews

Many thanks to Jetana at DS&JM Reviews for a recent review of Snowman Amuck. A great review site, check them out:

"Snowman Amuck was written and illustrated by Cindy Samul. The illustrations are very colorful to draw kids’ attention but also muted to fit with the winter setting. It looks like a comic book in the way it is laid out and my kids absolutely love it! I have a 3 and a 4 year old, so getting both of them to sit and look at the same book from beginning to end is a challenge sometimes but we didn’t have any issues with that when we read Snowman Amuck. This is the first story by Cindy that we have read, although it surely won’t be the last. My kids and I will look forward to seeing what adventures Samul’s characters go on- both past and future!" Read full review

Deep Water Selfie Board

Nice picture in Connecticut Family magazine of the selfie board I painted for Deep Water Maritime Crafts and Signs - at the Connecticut Family Festival back in June.


Selfie board, fun to make...just need some cardboard and paint (a good craft knife, Sharpies, a willing model, and live bubbles help too).
