Robert’s Snow Illustrators (more to come!)
Robert’s Snow: Selina Alko from Cheryl Klein at Brooklyn Arden. Here’s a sneak peek: “Selina’s delightful snowflake is called ‘Snow Taxi,’ and it features one of our indomitable NYC taxicabs driving up the side of the Chrysler Building on a snowy day.”
Robert’s Snow 2007: Starring Scott Bakal from Elaine Magliaro at Wild Rose Reader. Scott says: “Originally, it was a take-off of an image I created called The Snowman Realizes His Future, which recently was awarded to be in the American Illustration Annual 26. It shows a sad snowman looking up at a branch, which is his nose, sprouting leaves—a telltale sign that Spring is coming and that he will be melting away.”
Blogging for a Cure: Alexandra Boiger at Paradise Found. Here’s a sneak peek: “Since I became a parent I am always in a ‘time dilemma’, but at the same time it taught me to be disciplined about the time I do have. In short, I sit down at my drawing desk no matter what. Sometimes, on a day I didn’t feel creative things go slowly and not much valuable happens, sometimes I just needed to break the ice and all of a sudden I feel like riding a wave.”
Paige Keiser, illustrator, Robert’s Snow participant from Your Neighborhood Librarian. P Dog explains “Her interests moved to fine art and still life painting in college, and after discovering a book about N.C. Wyeth at a book store, fell in love with illustration.”
Robert’s Snow Illustrator-Janet Stevens from Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect. Tricia observes: “I love the wrinkled face full of personality and can just imagine getting thumped by that tail as it swings.”
