Illustration Friday | Rescue

For this week's theme, I couldn't resist using an older illustration I did a couple of years ago and gave to a shelter near our home. Our dog Connie is a rescue, and my husband and I are big supporters of animal welfare organizations and firm believers in the benefits (and joys!) of adopting rescued animals.

Para o tema desta semana, não resisti colocar uma ilustração antiga que fiz há dois anos atrás e dei para um abrigo de animais perto da minha casa. Nossa cadela Connie foi "resgatada" , e meu marido e eu apoiamos organizações em defesa dos animais e acreditamos nos benefícios (e alegrias!) da adoção de animais.

Check this out!

I haven't been updating my blog lately, but I wanted to tell you about a great one-day event that will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 25th, 2010 as part of the American Library Association's annual conference.

It's called "Drawn to delight: How picture books work (and play) today." Organized by the Association for Library Services for Children, this program is just the ticket for anyone who loves children's books.

Here's the description:

"The ALSC pre-conference will provide a one of a kind look into the world of picture books as art directors, museum educators, and award-winning illustrators will take attendees through the creative and collaborative journey of picture book development."
