Baltimore Book Fair Recap

Picture 1

The Baltimore Book Fair was a great success! I had a chance to see some old friends, meet a few new little people and share my love of books and drawings. The best part of the day was when, while illustrating on stage with a few kids, I needed to draw a road. I drew two lines diminishing to a single vanishing point (art lingo for those in the know ;-)). One young girl says, “that doesn’t look like a road!”. I say “you’re right”, add dotted lines down the middle (also toward the vanishing point), after which I hear a loud “that’s so AWESOME!” from a young artist (who informed me that he draws in a sketchbook at home earlier in the presentation).  I think it was his first perspective lesson. . . mind officially blown.

Thanks to Lee &  Low for arranging the visit and Heather C. (organizer and talent handler extraordinaire). For more pics check out the Flickr stream from book lover, P. Bee. Thanks Baltimore!

    Keep up the great work, girl! We are so in awe of you—even a little jealous that I didn’t have the nerve to venture out. Fortunately, I have been granted the priviledge to do so through “my children”.

    Best wishes and love you!

      Kids are easy…it’s adults that are hard to please 😉
