In June 2006 two illustrations I created for children’s book were transformed into large scale public art works in Washington DC. One, awarded by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities was a 7′ by 27′ reproduction of an illustration I created for the book Crawl, Caterpillar, Crawl. It stood for over a year as part of the commission’s Art Walk exhibit and hung on the site of the former convention center.
