I donated two pieces to the auction. The image above is a digital print of a pencil drawing I created for my book BEDTIME BUNNIES, which I then hand-colored with watercolor. This was one of the several trial pieces of art I made as I worked out the pencil techniques and color palette I would use for the book.
The other piece is one I created especially for the Sendak Memorial. I used pencil, pen-and-ink, and watercolor for this original. I first met Maurice in New York when I was getting started as a young illustrator and author.
Be sure to check out the auction, either in person or online! It's a chance to own an original piece of children's book art at a reasonable cost, while supporting a very worthwhile cause. http://abffesilentauction.wordpress.com/
