Tonight is Carle Honors 2010 in New York City and that means it’s your last chance to scope out the beautiful artwork on auction before the bidding begins. I still can’t decide if my favorite is this ocean scene by G. Brian Karas:
or these amazing owls by Denise Fleming:
Not to mention all the other original pieces by Caldecott winning illustrators keeping them company! Jerry Pinkney, Uri Shulevitz, Beth Krommes, David Macaulay, Leo & Diane Dillon…need I go on? How much do you love this school of fish by Jerry Pinkney?
