Creative Thanksgiving Contest


The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators are holding a contest about a brother and sister having a creative and unexpected Thanksgiving, so I went with Thanksgiving at the Circus.

Jen,
Love the bright colors. Your circus characters really light up this art piece of yours, along with the boy and girl in awe.
Very nice!

That reminds me of Thanksgiving at my house. Lots of action, and before you know it, the meal that took 3 days to prepare is gone in 10 minutes LOL. How much of that turkey do you think the strong man is going to eat? I also just love the high wire act in your piece and also the Ringmaster welcoming those unsuspecting kids into the Big Top.
Really creative and fun. I have been really enjoying, experiencing "your childrens world"
from your blog and website.

This is fantastic, Jen! I love it! :) Your concepts are SO clever! And I love the detail....lots of little details that make your pieces so much fun to look at!

You have a very distinctive style that ROCKS! I love it!

I feel that this entire scene would make a child really happy.

Love the candy colors Jen, the light touch, but heavy emphasis of light and shadow comes through well. Good job WW!
