Below is today’s Robert’s Snow schedule. The snowflake pictured here is an older one (2005), created by illustrator Eric Rohmann.
Quick note: Remember when I featured Jane Yolen’s beautiful ‘04 snowflake, her original poem on a snowflake from that year? Well, I didn’t know then — but I know now — that the artist who did the calligraphy on that flake is Agy Wilson (she’s also an author and egg artist as well as an illustrator and calligrapher). You can read all about her here at Yellapalooza or see some of her artwork here. Wahoo!
Did you see yesterday’s features? Jama Rattigan talked to Carol Schwartz about her art-making process, and as I read it, I was reminded what a great resource we’re building on this page (where all the features are being compiled) for those interested in reading about picture book art and illustrators. All the features were great, and thanks — as usual — to all participating bloggers.
Here is today’s snow schedule:
- Jeff Ebbeler, featured by Sam Riddleburger at his blog
- Scott Magoon, featured by Mark and Andrea at Just One More Book!!
- Connie McLennan, featured by Alyssa at The Shady Glade
- Julie Paschkis, featured by David Elzey at the excelsior file
Addendum: Please note that Sam Riddleburger has said that he finally got an image of Jeff Ebbeler’s ‘07 snowflake up at his feature. Don’t miss it!
