Here’s something Jana did for fun - a cover for John’s Time Tripping Faradays books! It wasn’t ever meant to be used, but we thought it was cool enough to share!

Something from the new, official John and Jana Tumblr … go follow us there. We have been cleaning out our vaults and finding lots of odd stuff we’ll be sharing as part of our 30 year anniversary of bumping into each other for the first time!

Here is a cover image and several inside illustrations Jana did for John’s unpublished chapter book, Miasma Lounge and the Plinkity-Plinks of Doom. Will it ever become a published chapter book? Dunno! But the pictures sure are pretty!

New Tumblr address, still the same!

We’re transitioning to another Tumblr, but with the same address … or rather, with the address this used to have … or … you know … you can go here (http://johnandjana.tumblr.com) and follow us, since that’s where we’ll put all the latest posts … confusing? Probably.

The French publisher of A Child’s Guide To Anarchy made this video to promote the book, particularly the “Make Music Even If You Don’t Know How” page!!!

This is very cool! The Plastinecos blog features sculpted versions of some of Jana’s illustrations! 

Jana’s classic tale of one Saturday, way too early in the morning.

We’re totally flattered by this lengthy, analytical School Library Journal review of Happy Punks 123. It’s always wonderful to encounter people who get your work.
“Basically this is a John Waters film made kid-friendly and picture book accessible.”
