The Original Art 2016 Exhibit at the Society of Illustrators

I don't even pretend to keep up with children's book illustration, but if The Original Art 2016 Exhibit at the Society of Illustrators is any indication, an uncanny amount of amazing art is currently being produced for our youngest readers. I couldn't help snapping a few pictures. Unfortunately, the combination of fluorescent light and reflective glass utterly defeats my crude photography skills. The good news though is you can see all the art for yourself at the Society through December 23.
