Carle Honors Art Auction (and a sneak peak of Ollie)

The Carle Honors 2010
I am very proud to have contributed to the annual art auction in support of the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. I painted a picture of the hero of my next picture book—Ollie! Ollie will be published in September 2011 from Knopf, but you can get sneak peak at him over at the Carle Honors website. Click here to see Ollie, check out the other great art and get info on the September 30th Gala in NYC.

PS—We artists were asked to pay tribute in some way to one of the recipients of this year's Honors. Lin Oliver and Stephen Mooser are being recognized for all of their great work through the SCBWI. You'll notice that Ollie is flying a kite, the symbol for the SCBWI, an organization that has helped so many authors and illustrators realize their dreams.

PPS—All of the original works from the Carle Honors auction will be on display at Books of Wonder, 18 West 18th Street, New York from September 12th through the 29th. The silent auction will go down at the Carle Honors Gala on September 30. Each work is custom framed by the Museum.
