Anyone attending the Not-a-Dinner and (Mostly) Silent Auction held during Book Expo America (BEA) this coming Tuesday, May 25th, at The Edison Ballroom in Manhattan?
Every year the Association of Booksellers for Children asks illustrators to donate a piece of artwork for the event. And here is this year's model. It started out as an illustration for Read It, Don't Eat It! - specifically for the admonition "Don't censor, delete, or deface" - but a few weeks in I decided to change the paper I was using, so I abandoned this and its companions. But I had done enough to warrant finishing it, so I fleshed it out somewhat.
Why not bid and bid and bid on it and support a worthy cause?
