The reunion is over, but we are still in Massachusetts. It seemed foolish to drive back to Maryland for a few days, given that we’re expected in Providence tomorrow for the start of the ICON conference.
So far, we have been successfully repressing the fact that we will, in three days time, be addressing a crowd of 500 from the ICON main stage, a crowd that includes many of the movers and shakers from the illustration world, a crowd that will never have heard of us and who may not like us at all and may hurl fruit in various stages of ripeness.

Today we head to downtown Boston for a trip to the Science Museum. Apparently, there are monkeys. The children are excited, except for August, who doesn’t understand monkeys and probably won’t for a while.
