I am delighted to learn that my book BEDTIME BUNNIES has been chosen for inclusion in this year's annual exhibition "Original Art" (http://www.societyillustrators.org/Awards-and-Competitions/Original-Art/Overview.aspx).  The exhibition is sponsored by, and held at, the Society of Illustrators in New York City, at 128 East 63rd Street.  This is a competitive show, meaning that books are submitted by publishers, illustrators, or others; the participating books are selected by a jury of illustrators, art directors, and editors.  This year there were 590 entries; 150 of these were chosen for inclusion.  The Society of Illustrators itself is an illustrious organization that was founded in 1901, and has been highly active ever since (http://www.societyillustrators.org/).  It's a very great pleasure and honor for me to be part of this show.  The opening night will be on October 27, and the show will run from October 26 through December 29.  And the original piece that I have chosen for hanging?
VISIT THE SHOW!  You'll see my original...and 149 other examples of today's best children's book illustration.


  1. Congratulations, Wendy,

    It IS competitive! I haven't been in for years. I'm glad for you.
