“I have both your portrait books: “Facial expressions” (adult version) and “Facial Expressions: babies to teens”, which provide an enormous variety of expression-drawing practice. Is there any likelihood of your new electronic book: “Facial Expressions: E-Book Companion. Volume 3” becoming available for purchase through Australian bookshops, e.g.: the Borders Bookshop Chain, as I do not have electronic bankcards? Thank you very much for your help, and for your publications.”

“I wanted to take a moment and thank you for creating such wonderful books, most specifically your Facial Expression reference series.
I am a professional Costume Designer and often teach Stage Make-Up courses at the University level– a class in which I have often used your books as one of the primary course texts, as they offer such a textural variety of ages, ethnicities, face shapes/structures and interesting characters for students to use in creating Make-Up Designs. Please know that your model’s faces (including your own, as I know you model in your books) and artists’ works have not only inspired the future illustrators of tomorrow (myself included in that category), but have also been integral in helping to shape those who partake in perhaps a less-likely-influenced art form. I have enclosed one of my recent sketches just for giggles.
Thank you once again for your endless contributions and ravenous art-making. My last Stage Make-Up class has heartily sent you 34 “thumbs up.”

“I just got your book yesterday and I absolutely love it. (I saw it featured in computer arts magazine). I am a new children’s book illustrator and writer (first book out next year) and I have been looking for such a reference book for a long time. I do a lot of exaggerated
Facial expressions in my books.
I am also a member of SCBWI (society of children’s writers and illustrators) and I posted a link to your book on the discussions board – It is a pretty active discussion board.
Would you ever consider doing a “Facial Expressions 2” with kid’s faces? I know it is difficult to get modeling rights for kids but I guarantee the children’s illustrators would buy it.”
