Instant Fanboyism

Richard Stevens from Diesel Sweeties and Meredith Gran from Octopus Pie gave a talk at work today as part of the Authors@Google series.

They were both really approachable and answered lots of questions during the talk. It's always odd to meet someone who's work you've followed for years but never seen a photo of.

Meredith gave out copies of her new Octopus Pie book and even signed them after the talk with quick character drawings. I was pretty stoked to get one. Meredith's artwork style is great and I love her story telling.

After the talk a bunch of people tagged along and had lunch with Richard and Meredith at Charlie's Cafe. It was really cool to just hang out and chat with them both.

I don't usually go in for the whole fanboy thing but these guys are awesome :)
