January 7, 2013: After some hard thought, I've decided to officially shut down this blog. I know I haven't updated it in a while, but I thought I should let you all know so you can remove it from your RSS feeds, etc.

Reason: I've decided that I need to find ways to make more time to read and create books.

I had great fun working on illustrating I'M BORED (written by Michael Ian Black, published by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers in Sept/2012) and am now working on writing and/or illustrating new book projects. In addition to my picture book projects, I also want to get back to my novel writing.

My challenge: I want to do too many things and am currently involved in too many projects. My solution: To prioritize and cull.

You can find out what I'm working on at DebbieOhi.com or follow me on Twitter at @inkyelbows.

Thanks so much for your support and interest in my projects.

Twitter: A Powerful Publishing Tool

From Like It or Not, Twitter Has Become a News Platform:

The reality is that, for all its flaws, Twitter is a publishing tool, and an increasingly powerful one. And it can be used by anyone, journalist and non-journalist alike.

News on Twitter can't replace a complete report of an important event, but you can't argue with the fact that it's a powerful publishing tool for "here's what's happening RIGHT NOW" accounts.
