Fight the Power!
I am happy to be participating in the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression’s 19th Annual Children’s Book Art Silent Auction. The ABFFE stands up for freedom of speech and fights against book censorship. Is there a better cause?
This year’s auction will be at the 2013 BookExpo America: Wednesday, May 29, 2013 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the Javits Convention Center.
My piece, DINOTSURIS (signed, 18 x 24″, watercolor on vellum), are character studies from a book that my publisher killed as I was getting ready to go to final art. Not exactly censorship—let’s call it “business”—but very appropriate for this event, I’d say.
See all the work and learn more about the auction, HERE.
Those who can’t make it to the Expo, can still bid on work in the online auction May 18 – 24.
