Tinyville Town gets some Society love

August 18th, 2016

Received an email this morning that Tinyville Town Gets to Work got into the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show. I’d forgotten to enter the show entirely this year (I know, how do I even make a living at this?) but Abrams entered the book for me, and it was one of three Abrams books that was selected. I couldn’t be happier.
My books have been in a few times in the past. The first two Everything Goes books got in, as did the fourth Brownie & Pearl book and The Boy Who Cried Alien. It’s been a few years for me, however, and it just makes my week that Gets to Work will be at the show in October.

We have to choose one spread to hang. These are my favorites. Thoughts? (click to enlarge)

I just got the news that I got two book into the annual Society of Illustrators’ Original Art children’s book show for 2011. Brownie & Pearl Take a Dip is one, and Everything Goes is the other. This is my first time in the SI so I’m sort of ridiculously pleased. Thanks to my editors at Beach Lane and Balzer+Bray, as well as the Society and the judges. Now time to partay.

Here’s some more information about this competition.
