Someone thrust a copy of The Sunday Age magazine at me the other day and said, 'Is this yours?' I felt like a proud parent — there was Short and Scary, a nice big cover, and a lovely review from Frances Atkinson. No, not mine, but a proud parent nevertheless. The illustration here is from Tegan Bell, a student who is interested in pursuing art as a career. Congrats to Tegan and the other students who made the final cut.
