Snowflakes on the Loose: Week 4 of Robert's Snow for Cancer's Cure

Following all the Robert's Snow posts in the blogosphere has become a great way to learn more about illustration and the way artists work. To explain a bit for those new to the endeavor, Robert's Snow is an online charity auction to raise funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. More than 200 children's book illustrators have decorated wooden snowflakes that are being auctioned off.

In support, a number of children's book blogs are featuring individual artists involved in the project. Masterminded by the indefatigable Julie Danielson at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, Blogging for a Cure started in mid-October, and continues for the next several weeks. To see all the snowflakes in one place and to find out how to bid, visit the official site of Robert's Snow for Cancer's Cure.

This week's schedule of blog features follows after the jump. Many thanks to Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect and Jen of Jen Robinson's Book Page for providing the links.

Actually, Tricia put together the links for this coming week... But regardless, it's going to be a great collection of posts and snowflakes.

Thanks, Jen. Yes, a great week!

I KNOW! Isn't it a great resource being compiled -- all the features in one spot so that us picture book/illustrator-lovin' nerds can get our fill? It's for such a great cause, but I love that about this Blogging for a Cure effort, too.

Maybe that's just 'cause I'd LOVE to be an illustrator but have no talent.
