IBBY Honour List 2014 + Giveaway



IBBY 2014 Honour List

Last Monday (September 15), I woke up to the news that “Dana’s Trip” made the IBBY Honour List 2014 for Illustration. The diplomas were handed by the President during the IBBY International Congress held this year in Mexico City – September 10-13.

From IBBY’s Site: “The IBBY Honour List is a biennial selection of outstanding, recently published books, honoring writers, illustrators and translators from IBBY member countries. For the 2014 Honour List, 52 countries have sent 150 nominations in 39 different languages. Selected for the 2014 list are 57 entries in the category of Writing; 50 in the category Illustration; and 43 in the category Translation.”

You can see a timeline of how it all happens here, and a video with all the winners here. Go to 11:07 for “Dana’s Trip”! :)

Illustration Friday Farewell



Penelope Dullaghan has decided to leave Illustration Friday. It is sad to see her go but I’m excited to see what she does next! She created a fantastic community where so many of us illustrators started getting the courage to show work. I was one of them :)

New Directions – AKA Transportation



These last couple of months I’ve found a new direction to my work. I have looked back to my culture and ethnicity. With this I hope to bring a more meaningful body of work. There will be exploration, successes and failures. It’s how it should be and I’ll share as I explore.

Now, this week’s Illustration Friday coincides with a piece I just finished – Llama Ride. I painted this personal piece for the Call to Hispanic/Latinos Multicultural PB Artists I posted yesterday.

Hope you enjoy the piece :D
