Society of Illustrators Original Art show

It was a pleasure and an honor to receive a silver medal last night from the Society of Illustrators. The medal was for Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11, and was presented at the opening of the Society’s annual Original Art show. Thank you to the Society and judges, and to everyone there for the generous congratulations!

You can read more about the show here. I’m very happy to be a part of it, and to know so many other talented people who are, too. If you’re in range of New York and interested in children’s book illustration, it’s well worth the visit!

Such a great book!
i just purchased Lightship and Racecar Alphabet! I LOVE them. Your writing is just fantastic. I felt like i could hear the wind and waves, gulls and creaking of the ship's hull in Lightship. Just great.

Congratulations on this. Really, really well-deserved. Sorry I couldn't be there to raise a glass. We'll raise several to make up for it when I'm back in town.
