Wow...2011, its here, and has been for about 10 days- but I still almost write 2010 on my checks. Yep, I still write checks, crazy I know! Anywhoo, I had a fabulous New Year celebration in Abilene. I went to the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature, the NCCIL is amazing! (I go there anytime I am in Abilene...)They are currently featuring the work of Brian Selznick. He is fabulous....I read The Invention of Hugo Cabret and I must say he is brilliant! I love the way the exhibit shows you the original art work and then how it appears in a book- the transformation is well, breathtaking to a nerd like me who would love to have a book published one day.
