Illustration Friday | Mesmerizing

Poor Little Red Riding Hood -- she doesn't stand a chance!  I've always been mesmerized by wolves.  When I was little I wanted to be a wolf biologist (I lost count of how many times I read "Never Cry Wolf" by Farley Mowat!)

This coming Saturday I'm participating in SCBWI-EPA's Illustrator Day.  Our assignment is to illustrate two spreads of Little Red Riding Hood.  Here's a sneak peek!

Coitada da Chapeuzinho Vermelho -- ela está perdida!  Eu sempre fui fascinada por lobos.  Quando eu era pequena, queria estudar lobos (já perdi a conta de quantas vezes eu li "Os Lobos" de Farley Mowat!)

No próximo sábado vou participar do Dia do Illustrador, uma oficina organizada pela SCBWI-EPA.  O dever de casa era ilustrar duas páginas de "O Chapeuzinho Vermelho."  Aqui vai uma prévia!

Exhibit News : The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats

A new exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York City celebrates the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.

The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats opens on September 9 and stays at the Jewish Museum until January 29, 2012. From there the exhibit travels to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts (June 26 to October 14, 2012) and to the Contemporary Jewish Museum in California (Mid-November 2012 to February 2013.)

This is the first major exhibit in the United States honoring author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats and features over 80 original works by the artist, as well as sketches and dummies.

I feel a trip to NYC coming on!
