Meilo So's New Contact

In anticipation of BookExpo America, the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression is holding an online auction of original illustration art and prints. The works to be sold are listed on eBay through Friday May 24. Proceeds will be used to help support the Kids' Right to Read Project and Banned Books Week.

One of my favorite pieces from this auction is Meilo So's original artwork depicting the way we spend so much of our time these days totally connected. A young man and woman are paying close attention to their respective smart phones, but she is making an offline connection as well.

Meilo So, Romance

September 28, 2013 Update:  On her website, Meilo So gives this work the title Romance, so I have done the same here.

Note:  An original drawing by Maurice Sendak of Little Bear will be sold in New York at the Jacob Javits Convention Center on May 29. I wrote about it here.
