The other day, I was making some bold claims about my prowess as an illustrator, and I mentioned that I had been “published in several books.”
My dad is a computer genius, and back when people didn’t know how to Google the answers to everything, he used to write books about computers. When I was about 12, he wrote a book called Compact Guide to Windows 95, and he asked me to draw something for the section about MS Paint.
When my fans clamored for a sequel, Dad wrote Windows NT Training Guide and asked me to draw another masterpiece. I called this one “Spraypaint Tool Basketball Shorts.”
Dad said that both books were bundled with CDs inside the cover, which seemed pretty cool at the time. But I think we can all agree that the real selling point was the illustrations, am I right?
