To celebrate Red Fox's first birthday, Karen and I decided to re-vamp our much neglected little blog with two new sources of material. The first is an Illustration Friday-type concept where we give our illustrators a topic to illustrate every few weeks and post the resulting pieces. The second draws from our talented clients and their experiences working in the children's book world--from the process of writing a complete YA novel, to the mechanics of picture book illustration, to reporting on conferences and book events. We're excited about the possibilities of this group blog and hopeful that all of you out there find something inspiring in our little experiment.
So for our first foxy illustration topic we picked, appropriately enough, "birthdays." Here's what the gang sent in:
Rosalinde Bonnet, "Arctic Birthday"
Stacey Dressen McQueen
Mary Ann Fraser
Tatjana Mai Wyss
Sarah Watts, "Happy Bearday"
And, lastly, another little scene from Rosalinde Bonnet:
Some of these illustrations will be available as cards in our Zazzle store. To view more samples from these and other Red Fox illustrators, visit www.redfoxliterary.com.
