Well, folks. Sorry there's no new drawing this week (I've got one on the go) but I wanted to re post these and to share something with you, too. Yesterday I found out that I have been selected to exhibit at the Bologna Children's Book Fair. Anyone who's involved in children's books will know that Bologna is THE event of the calender. I am so excited, I still can't believe it. I keep checking the website to see if that really is my name. This has been a dream of mine for at least a decade. These are two of the drawings that I submitted.
Also, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who visits my blog. I wouldn't have realised this dream if it hadn't been for all the support and encouragement you give me on a daily basis.
Just one more thing, my email has been acting really screwy recently. For anyone who has tried to contact me and hasn't received a reply 'sorry'. I try to get back to everyone within a week, so if I haven't done it's my stupid email account not getting messages through to me. Either, leave a comment here or send me a Flickr mail and I will try and get back to you via my new account.

Congrats Andrea!!!!!!! I'm so proud!
Well done, that's so exciting!!
Hi, I just wanted to say Hi and Congratulations! I discovered your blog somehow (?) and always have a peek and it seems rude to not say hello. Otherwise it's like peeking into someone's house when they left the light on!
Great drawings, cool blog
Congratulations! you'll knock 'em out with your work. Thanks to you for inspiring us!
Looking forward to your coming to the States for an exhibition.
Whoo Hoo.... You deserve the honor... Congratulations.
Once again, guys, I'm totally overwhelmed by the response from you. Thank you all so much for all the encouragement. I'll take you along on this journey with me. In more ways than one.
Congratulations! This is indeed a moment to celebrate!
Many congratulations Andrea - that's wonderful news - which I'll be featuring on my blog next Sunday.
Wow Andrea! Congrats, congrats, congrats! I am excited for you!
Congratulations! Of course, they're awfully lucky to get you....
Oh my! That is SO wonderful, Andrea!!! Congratulations!!!! I can hardly wait to hear what it's like and how it goes there. Does this mean we'll get to see a childrens book from you soon?? I sure hope so!
That's wonderful and a great accomplishment.
Kathleen, that would be the most perfect case scenario. Being selected for the Fair gets me closer to that goal than I anything else ever has. So, fingers crossed.
Thank you, Casey, and erm, Carol!
You so deserve to be recognized and to have your work out there where others can enjoy it. It's a privilege to get to see your creativity here. Congratulations:-D
