Blogging for a Cure, Day 24

h1 November 7th, 2007 by jules

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:

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!

  1. Jama’s interview was a thing of beauty, wasn’t it? I keep linking to you guys for the daily lists (you’re where my hot button takes folks!) I hope that’s okay.

  2. Of course that’s fine, Kelly. The more who read about the snowflakes, the better and the more money will get raised for cancer, we hope.
