From the Artist
When the Washington State Convention Center first hosted a show of work by children's illustrators, a local editor saw my image and kept it in her mind. That led directly to the opportunity to illustrate Thor Hanson's Bartholomew Quill, a Crow's Quest to Know Who's Who. I have chosen a spread from that book to display in this year's show. The image was created in ink and watercolor and illustrates Bartholomew's quest to find out what kind of creature he is by comparing himself to countless others.
