Judge and Peer and GG Awards

   The cat's out of the bag!  I can finally tell a secret that I've had to keep for the last 2 months.  The toughest time being while I was hanging out with publishing friends in Toronto.
    I was very honored to be asked to be a judge for the Governor General's awards in the category of children's illustration 2013.  The finalists have just been announced.
    The biggest reward for me was being sent over 100 children's books to review.  I got  such a great overview of the amazing talent we have in Canada.   And judging comes very naturally to me - being a virgo we're quite happy to criticize.
    The follow up to this is going to be interesting. As an illustrator I have mostly kept to myself - believing, as a creative person, it's best to keep your head down and focus on your own work rather than looking at too much else.  But I have to say this has been so enjoyable to see how other illustrators handle certain subjects or choose to fill up a page. I wouldn't be surprised if it shows up in my work.
    To see the wonderful finalists check out http://canadacouncil.ca/en/council/news-room/news/2013/gg-finalistes-2
    Having said how enjoyable it was I also have to say it was a tough gig - deciding which book is better than another is a very arbitrary thing when styles, subjects and moods vary so much. But it is the nature of awards and I am grateful to have been asked to take part.

Good to hear that you sent 100 books for children. It is definitely a good and social work. Lots of person has ability to do such kinds of work but they are not doing. I think they are not interested or it can be something else.
