Thank You For Making it Our Biggest Show Yet!

Wow, our 22nd Annual Children's Book Illustration Art Show & Book Signing was a fun-filled wonderful day! Chemers Gallery was packed to the brim with art & book lovers eager to meet our talented illustrators & authors and view the original children's book illustrations on display. HUGE thanks to everyone who joined us, especially artists Michael Hague, Brett Helquist, Molly Idle, Stacy Innerst and John Parra, authors Paul Brewer, Kathleen Hague, Kathleen Krull and Roseanne Greenfield Thong, and our extraordinary volunteers from Chapman University! We'd also like to thank the Orange County Children's Book Festival for arranging for the illustrator talks and demos to be filmed, as well as Theresa Battel and Ann Heusted for donating super-yummy cheeses and cookies for the day!

If you missed the big day, take a look at some of the pictures provided by Max Kosydar and Guillermo LeFranc - thanks, guys! (You can see the whole photo album on our Facebook album.)

What an amazing crowd!
