Sendak Memorial Annual Children’s Book Silent Auction at BEA 2013

Gracie reading Where The Wild Things Are to Elephant-original watercolor for The Sendak Memorial at the 19th Annual Children's Book Silent Auction-Supporting Free Speech Rights for Young Readers May 29 at Book Expo America

Gracie reading  The Wild Things to Elephant–watercolor, ink and Mozart–for The Sendak Memorial at the 19th Annual Children’s Book Silent Auction-Supporting Free Speech Rights for Young Readers at Book Expo America

Gracie and Elephant fell out of my pen and landed on the page…much like they did in their book. I thought about Maurice often while I was making the book, Elephant’s Story. I was a student of Maurice’s in the 70’s.

The book was drawn to Stan Getz and Miles Davis. However, this piece of art is for Maurice…It was drawn to Mozart.

I am happy that it will be part of the Sendak Memorial.

I am also donating a signed digital print (100% rag paper) from my book Bob published 2002 by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. I have been asked again and again for prints from Bob. I’m sorry I am not more organized and do not remember who you are! Finally I made this print for the auction. Maybe you will be at the Silent Auction at the Javits Center in NYC on May 29th? It is for a great cause. Bob is happy he can be there.

I am including a link to the auction site…a lot of wonderful art has been donated by a group of amazing artists…it is an honor to be part of the event…hope to see you there…if not…they are having an on-line auction as well…..tcp http://abffesilentauction.wordpress.com/about/
