The Little Rock Nine for READ Magazine

These are two of four illustrations that I recently did for READ Magazine. The story, "Warriors Don't Cry", is about Melba Patillo - one of the Little Rock Nine - a group of African-American students that were intigrated into the all-white Little Rock High School in 1957.

Chances are that you are already aware of the Robert's Snow: for Cancer Cure Fundraiser. If you don't here's the deal. It's unique way to acquire original art from some of your favorite children's book illustrators and authors while helping to fight cancer. Grace Lin created the fundraiser after writing the book Robert's Snow which was inspired by her husband Robert's battle with Ewing's sarcoma. Selina and I are proud to have each contributed a snowflake for the fundraiser this year. Above is Selina's snowflake and mine can be found lower on the page under Snowflakes and Postcards. The third installment of the auction will begin this Monday December 3rd and ends Friday December 7th 5pm.The snowflakes can be seen here. In addition to our snowflakes you can also bid on snowflakes from some of our friends and other fellow illustrators:
Grace Lin, Mo Willems, Peter Brown, Meghan McCarthy, Jarrett Krosoczka, Dan Santat, Rebecca Doughty, Matt Phelan,Ashley Bryan, Rebecca Guay, Carin Berger, Kelly Murphy, Mark Teague and lots more.
