What?! Yesterday, I got some crazy-good news from Feiwel and Friends pal and creative director, Rich Deas. Apparently, TROUBLE GUM was chosen to be a part of the 29th Annual Exhibition at the Society of Illustrators! This is major. And I had no idea it was coming. I guess the pubs submit all their books to all kinds of things all over. This one stuck. The news was a complete surprise and pretty much floored this old boy.
Congratulations are in order to my fellow Macmillan honorees, Maria van Lieshout (PEEP!), Taeeun Yoo (ONLY A WITCH CAN FLY), and Wendy Wahman (DON'T LICK THE DOG)!
