Below is today’s Robert’s Snow schedule.
Many thanks to Elaine Magliaro for telling me about some beautiful snowflakes she saw in person at the Danforth Museum of Art in Framinghman, Massachusetts, on Sunday, November 4th (here is her post about it). These are snowflakes who haven’t been assigned to a blogger in the Blogging for a Cure effort, so I was able to snag images of them from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and will be showing them to you over the next couple of days.
This one is from set and costume designer, artist, and illustrator Vladimir Shpitalnik, and isn’t it just breathtaking? Here’s the link to the illustration page of his web site. His most recent book, written with Connie Evans, is Sasha and Babushka: A Story of Russia (published by Soundprints, and I’m having trouble figuring out if the copyright date is ‘06 or ‘07, but it’s one of those).
Also, please note the comment from illustrator Yuyi Morales at this older post. Thank goodness, she wants to clarify that her beautiful ‘07 snowflake for Robert’s Snow, “Little Night: See Me Shine” (pictured above), is actually a music box. Be still, my heart. Just when we thought that snowflake couldn’t be any better, we find out it plays music. Squee! Yuyi also created this video about the creation of the snowflake, which tells you much more about it. Just look at the close-ups of Little Night’s snowflake-covered cloud-for-hair. I love it! This is not something you can necessarily see from the image of the snowflake, so thanks to Yuyi for sharing that video with us (and for sending us this alternate photo of the snowflake). This snowflake, as a reminder, can be bidded on in Auction 1.
