inklines:

Last night at The Twitter Fiction Festival I got to draw along on stage with the great R.L. Stine while he told a ghost story! I also drew some of the the participants and the drawings were live tweeted as I drew them to millions and millions and millions of people. Probably.

Pictured here (in addition to Mr. Stine are Matt Gehring, Sara Barron, Diana Spechler and Christian Finnegan. It was a great night and I’d like to thank Penguin Books, randomhouse and Twitter for inviting me along for the night!

The super-cool inklines live-illustrated our Twitter Fiction Festival kick-off event last night! How ridiculously cool are these?
