Below is today’s Robert’s Snow schedule.
Today’s 2007 snowflake (pictured above) — which was not assigned to a blogger, so I’m happy to feature it here — was created by Brooklyn editorial illustrator, children’s book illustrator, designer, painter, and sculptor James T. Williamson, whose blog branches off in many directions: his work as a children’s book illustrator (where he talks about some of his books); his work as designer and illustrator on CD covers and posters; and his work as a “computer painter” at Impressionist Robot. Look at his post about his ’05 snowflake, “Vincent Van Goghflake.” The back of that snowflake is pictured here. And if you click here and scroll down a bit, you can see his ’04 snowflake, “Edward Hopper Snowfake, an interpretive copy of Edward Hopper’s New York Corner, 1913 with extrapolated dendrites and snow.”
If you missed them, you can read yesterday’s features here. I learned something I didn’t know about illustration in one of yesterday’s features: In Jo Whittemore’s feature of Philomena O’Neill, Ms. O’Neill talks about how sometimes illustrators determine things such as page turns from a picture book text they’re given. I did not know that, and it’s one part of the writing and illustrating of a picture book I’ve always wondered about. See what fun facts you’ll gather from these Blogging for a Cure features? As someone very interested in illustration but not possessing a lick ‘o’ talent myself, I think this stuff is interesting.
Don’t forget this page where all the features are being compiled in one spot.
Here is today’s schedule:
