More Web Resources

Here are another couple of useful resources I've stumbled across while browsing through industry blogs and attending meetings. First, is the International Children's Digital Library. The site features books published throughout the world. It's a great resource if you are interested in what type of books are being produced in other countries. The second is a page on the website of Anastasia Suen. This page is called Blog Central - Children's Book Reviews and features a substantial selection of book reviewers for the children's market. This is very useful especially now that Kirkus is closing it's doors.

I've been keeping track of the online resources that are illustration, art and children's literature specific on my web site. I've you are in need of such resources feel free to visit my resource page.

Happy Drawing.

Tempe Center for the Arts Illusrator Panel

Better late than never, right? I just stumbled across these photos of the Illustrator panel that I was part of back in August, that was part of our Illustrator show at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Thank you Molly for sending these photos to me ages ago and I'm sorry that I am only getting around to posting them now.

It was a great evening. You can see Molly Idle, Paul Mirocha, me (Tanja Bauerle), David Christiana, and and Ann Coe talking about what we do as illustrators and the industry in general. It was so inspiring to be part of such incredibly talented company but what I liked most is to see how passionate everyone is about what they do. No matter what we do creatively, we share a common thread which is an extreme love for our craft.

Happy Drawing.


Christmas came early...

What is more fun than getting a box of your own books in the mail? I was so excited to open my box of just released "Wright on Time - Utah" books. They turned out wonderfully. Don't they look awesome? I've been doing the happy dance a lot lately, and it just keeps going...

Happy drawing to all.
