Wow It's A Cow has won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award!

http://paigekeiser.com/Paige_Keiser_Illustrations/Portfolio_files/Media/wow3/wow3.jpg?disposition=downloadOh my goodness, I'm so glad to be back in the saddle again!  The holidays have come and gone, and it's now time to sharpen those pencils, and tackle my current projects head-first!  What's on my plate now?  Dutton has responded with sketch notes for "Baby Moose Visits" including some text rewrites.  I'm still not a hundred percent happy with my character designs and still trying out some art styles.  I really want this book to sing, and for the relationship between the boy and moose to be believable and palpable in my drawings. 

I just finished up final art for the touch-and-feel book for Guidepost, "One Night In Bethlehem" - I can't wait to see it in print!  

With the end of the holidays I also have more time to check out the blogs of my readers (with a cup of hot tea in tow of course).

Also, thought I might include a bit of news:  my book "Wow It's A Cow" has won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award!!  Whooo hooo!!!

Paige Keiser said...

Thanks everyone!! :0)

June: LOL I was so surprised they let me draw udders. I've drawn quite a few cows for different clients and they were not allowed.

June said...

Paige, You could add your 'proud cow' to our "Udder Club" on the PBAA blog :)

It is our small way to object to being asked to hide udders in children's book illustrations.
