Samples: Highlights For Children Stuff

Happy Monday, all! Just a quick posting to thank Highlights for Children for selecting me for “Illustrator of the Month”. That was the month of February, so I’m a little late in posting this. : )

Highlights is the only magazine (rather, publishing company) I know of that expresses such great appreciation like they do to illustration, illustrators, and the illustrators that they contract. These platters and letters are just a part of their way of conveying the value they have for illustrators. The party they throw each year is amazing (I attended two years ago. Wow!), not to mention the relationship they build with their contractors. It’s got a family-feel to it all.

So thank you, Christine, Cynthia, Kelley and staff, for choosing me for the month of February! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you guys, too!

And, below, is the spread that they are talking about…”The Champion Of Quiet”, a cute story written by Tracy Stewart.

Below: A pull-out of the first spot from the spread.

    Congrats on the letter and the Illustrator of the Month Award. I recognized the platter right away because I got one a number years ago. But I’ve never been to the annual party. That must have been a real treat.

    Hey Bron–Thanks! Yes, the platter. I got one a few years back, too. Nice to get another. If I get two more, I’ll have a set. : ) The party is amazing! There are not that many opportunities to get together with other illustrators. And so many!
