I made this book cover, ACROSS THE RIVER: FAVORITE FAIRY TALE TRICKSTERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD, for the R. Michelson Gallery Emerging Artist Award contest going on this spring in conjunction with the New England SCBWI conference in Springfield. Growing up, my favorite fairy tale mash-up illustrations were always the book covers of big anthologies, so this is a tribute. Or maybe its a pitch for a new one. I’m really happy with how those pink boots and hat Puss is wearing came out! Are you going to the conference, too? I hope to see you there!
