the R. Michelson show

If you missed the opening of the R. Michelson's annual children's illustrations show last Sunday, you missed quite the party. A majority of the artists in the show were present and even more artists and authors stopped by. And there were a ton - as evidenced by the amount of people who posed for the group photo. As soon as I spot a copy of that photo floating around on the Internet, I'll be sure to post it here.

Here are a few of my photos from the festivities. And if you are going to be near Northampton, do stop by the gallery to see the work in person!

Richard Michelson addresses the crowd.

Norton Juster receives an award for his
dedication to the Reader to Reader program.

Scott Fischer's coordination skills rival his drawing skills
(and his drawing skills are mad good, yo.)

Also, our good neighebors from the Great White North were in town. Mark and Andrea (and their lovely daughters) of the Just One More Book podcast were in town to take it all in and record hours upon hours of audio for their show. That will be up at some point on their site, but in the meantime, check out their Flickr page here.

It was great to see you again at the gallery in Northampton--and to meet your lovely wife. I agree with Nicole--your art looks fabulous!
