Alright, friends of children's book art everywhere! Have I got great news for you! If you've been looking to collect some amazing-and-hard-to-find children's book art from some amazing-and-hard-to-find artists, AND you've been wanting to plunk down some good money on an excellent cause, then LOOK NO FURTHER! My ridiculously talented friend Carson Ellis has put together an online auction of some of the best children's books artists out there, and everything earned from the sale of the art goes straight to a great school called Victory Academy in Oregon. Apparently, this school for autistic kids is amazing, but needs a permanent building. So fulfill two of your new year's resolution now: Help out a good cause, and own some awesome art!
to whet your whistle, here's a list of the artists selling their work:
MARLA FRAZEE * JEN CORACE * LEUYEN PHAM * NIKKI MCCLURE * JON KLASSEN * ADAM REX * ELEANOR DAVIS * LAURA PARK * ROMAN MURADOV * HEATHER ROSS * GILBERT FORD * MATT MYERS * SOPHIE BLACKALL * LISA BROWN * MELISSA GUION * DIANA SUDYKA * LANE SMITH * CHRIS TURNHAM * CHUCK GROENINK * CARIN BERGER * MO WILLEMS * GREG PIZZOLI * MARIA VAN LIESHOUT * JOANNA NEBORSKY * CARSON ELLIS
i'm not sure myself why i'm on this list with these cool people, but i'll take it! here's my piece below. and PLEASE pass it on! the more people who see, the more support for the school!
