2007 Golden Kite Honor for Picture Book Illustration

I got very good news this week that I have to share with the 3 (ok maybe 4) people who read my blog. I found out that Who put the B in the Ballyhoo? was winner of this year's 2007 Golden Kite Honor for Picture Book Illustration. It's such an honor to be recognized by SCBWI. Check out the winners.

And congratulations to Yuyi Morales for being the Golden Kite winner for Little Night. I was fortunate enough to meet Yuyi a few years ago at the SCBWI Los Angeles conference and she gave me my first ever critique. It was the best one I ever got and Yuyi really inspired me to clean up my act and get a stronger portfolio together.

Carlyn! That is fantastic for you! Hooray Hooray!

Yuyi said...

Wow, Carlyn, the admiration goes from this way to yours too! I love your work in WHO PUT THE B IN THE BALLYHOO? Last year I brought it to my writer's group so that we could all admire and try to guess how you made the illustrations. We are still working on trying to figure it out!
Excellent, excellent work.
congratulations to you too!

Congratulations on The Golden Kite honors... Clearly well deserved. I used to be a children's librarian, and am now a family therapist... with deepening affection for painting and drawing. (Saw your work via IF.) If I had my life to do over, I'd have been an artist.
