  1. Hey Michael, I love this one! Robyn is great – I find that hearing a voice is so important and she has a rich and happy one. GET TWITTER LESSONS from her and then teach me. Cheers

  2. Beautiful drawings – especially “Hell” – WOW! Great interview! I’d add her if she was on facebook (lol).

  3. Yes, Geoff- am still on the learning curve w/Twitter, but will pass along any good tips. And anyone out there who wants to offer some tips of their own, feel free– thanks!

    And thanks for the comment Kristin!
