Show Time!

Today is the first day of the Society of Children's Book Writer and Illustrators of Western Washington Illustrator Exhibit (how's that for a mouthful?).   It's a juried exhibit featuring illustrations by some of our local Northwest talent.  Henny is making an appearance so, if you're in the area, come on down to the Washington State Convention Center and take a gander at her and all the other wonderful art!
For those of you elsewhere, here's the poster for the show--drawn by fab artist Jessixa Bagley and art directed by the amazing (and my fellow crit group buddy) Kevan Atteberry:

Here's a peek at the spread from HENNY.  
I forgot to snap a pic of her all purdy-like in the frame, but you get the idea:

    1. I'm glad you like and noticed her neckerchief! It was bestowed on her by Mr. Farmer (ahhh-- the plot thickens). I certainly hope she does knock 'em dead-- after-all, she IS armed ;) :) When the time comes, I want a review by Tyler. It will make a great blog post! Thanks, E.!

  14. Henny cracks me up. (And I love the monster in the tutu, by the way. Very much in line with my own thinking!)
