The Original Art

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Hello lads and ladies! I'm headed on a little trip to New York City...

First stop: 128 East 63rd Street this Thursday night for the opening reception of the 2011 Original Art Show at the Society of Illustrators. I have two prints up: a spread from Just Being Audrey and the cover of I Had a Favorite Dress (thank you, jury!). It's always a fun & booky night if you'd like to come, details are here. The show runs through December 29th. I'm so excited for a nose-close peek at this year's exhibit. Can't wait to see fellow book makers & book lovers, hope to see you there!

Also on the itinerary despite possible drear (it looks like rainy weather will be accompanying me to the city): a long-awaited visit to Bemelman's Bar for a cocktail with Madeline, a pilgrimage to the former Maya Schaper's Cheese & Antiques building on the upper west side (for silly fangirl reasons!), Riverside Park (which I've been drawing for an upcoming book with Candlewick, but have never been to) and a little visit to Books of Wonder...rain rain stay away!

Hello hello! I've been busy drawing wobbly bicycles for a brand new book, but I will be back shortly! Hope you are doing fine.

Fall color in the studio.
A lot of cheerfulness for $2.99 at the grocery store!

Complete with shy & mysterious black cat.
