Winners please send me your name and address


Here is an illustration by Bob Mcmahon to help us celebrate our winners and all the industry professionals moving up. Bob was featured on Illustrator Saturday in 2014. Here’s the link.

Congratulations to Carole Gerber. Her book, LITTLE RED BAT (Arbordale Publishing, 2010), has been translated and is being sold in China. In the process she learned from a Chinese-American author that bats are symbols of good luck in Chinese culture and she told me that the words for “bat” and “good fortune” are homophones.
