the news section

By "news" of course, we mean that which is new. Information, projects, ideas, that sort of thing. Maybe sometimes now and then you might find the "recent" and occasionally something quite "old" might find its way on to these pages. Possibly it could be in the form of an illustration, or perhaps I"m just behind the curve in some way. Enjoy.

Ten Trick or Treaters: the Prizes

October 29, 2008 | bookmark | Leave a Comment

Hi, I have some information regarding the rewards for the hard work many of you are putting in to the Ten Trick or Treaters contest.
First, a disclaimer: This contest is not related in any way to the book of the same name by my wonderful editor, Janet Schulman. I had no idea about that book until Judy Sierra, one of the judges, told me about it. The irony is that this was going to be TWENTY Trick or Treaters but time did not allow. It’s a lovely book, so check it out.
Ok, here’s how we’re doing this. There will be a total of ten prizes. Each of the ten characters will have a 1st prize for the favorite name/description of the character. Then one of these, the best one, will be designated the “Grand Prize Winner.” Each of the first prizes will get a signed, very nice print of the character with the name and description in question. The grand prize is the first place prize with a copy of the book that judge Judy Sierra wrote and I illustrated, with autographs.
So if that’s not worth an entry, I don’t know what is. There are eight characters up currently and two more will be up on Thursday. Thanks and have fun!
