Blogging for a Cure, Day Seven

Here is the Robert’s Snow illustrator-and-snowflake feature schedule for Sunday, October 21. Featured here is Peter McCarty’s 2005 snowflake, “Blue Mood,” rendered in ink. Here’s a note-from-the-artist that went with the snowflake: “I have been known for a soft style. I enjoyed doing the snowflake because it helped me to open up a bit. I would love to make books in the future that are like this. Thank you.”

I love it. Love it. LOVE IT. Yes, I’m yelling.

In this below schedule, the illustrator’s name links to his/her website, but click on the blog to be taken to that blogger’s snowflake/illustrator feature:

* Matthew Cordell, featured by “LindaBudz” at Just Like the Nut

* Maxwell Eaton III, featured by Darla at Books and Other Thoughts

* Roz Fulcher, featured by Sheri Goad at Goading the Pen

* Susie Jin, featured by Stephanie Ruble at sruble’s world

* Susan Mitchell, featured by “MsMac” at Check It Out

Did you see yesterday’s features? Which snowflake has “a dash of Antonio Banderas”? Hmmm, you’ll have to read them all to find out (but here’s a hint). And which snowflake has a lift-the-flap feature (oh people, it’s so flippin’ puddin’ cute and charming and clever that I almost can’t stand it) and its illustrator explains to you how in Japan paper artists are treated like sports heroes? Hmmm again, you’ll have to read them all to find out (but, okay, here’s another easy hint). All the features were fun to read, and thanks again to all participating bloggers.

As I say every single day in case you’ve missed it, don’t forget this new page here at 7-Imp, updated daily, which lists all the illustrator features thus far in one spot, and it’s turning into a handy-dandy, way-cool illustrator resource for us Picture Book Nerds.

  1. I love the art of Judy Schachner. Her Skippyjon Jones books cracked me up. Skippy does have a hint of AB.
