Congratulations to Sandra Ure Griffin who was chosen as the winner of the Tomie DePaola Award by Tomie himself. Her woodcut style artwork is beautiful and her win will take her to the SCBWI Winter Conference. It’s a wonderful event with lots of information and inspirations to be gained. Here is a link to the announcement on the SCBWI site and also a list of honerable mentions:

I didn’t win the award but I do think that I won a great new addition to my portfolio. 🙂 Visit the unofficial gallery of the contest entries here:  http://scbwicontest.blogspot.com/ There were over 300 entries and some incredible pieces for you to get inspired by.

Happy creating to all. T.
