My fellow Girllustrator Patrice Barton has had art from her book Mine! (by Shutta Crum) accepted into the Society of Illustrators Original Art show, which showcases the best illustrated picture books of the year. This year the society selected artwork from 150 books, out of almost 600 submitted. This is definitely an achievement to be proud of, and well-deserved by Patty. If you’re in New York between October 26 and December 29, be sure to stop by the Society to see the show. It will definitely be worth your time! Click here to see the book trailer for Mine!

By the way, The Girllustrators (my illustration group) now has its own blog! Exciting, right? Now you can keep up with the group even if I forget to tell you about it here!
