Last weekend I attended an illustrator’s booksigning. It was standing-room only. Illustrator Carolyn Dee Flores had a display of some of her original art from the bilingual book she illustrated. She spoke about the different techniques she used in illustrating Canta, Rana, Canta,/Sing,Froggie,Sing and her inspiration in creating the book that by the end of the signing had sold out. A couple of museums have already asked and received some of the original art from the book. I am very proud of this young lady. She happens to be my daughter!
The struggle to master a medium, whether it's words, notes, paint, or marble, is the heroic part of making art. -- Chris Van Allsburg
