Buckaroo Bash - Bessie's Bed Cowboy Hat!

Hey, Amigos! I was selected as one of the artists for the 2007 Buckaroo Bash, an Adobe Society fundraiser for educational outreach programs being held at the Eiteljorg Museum.

The Eiteljorg Museum is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. It opened in 1989 and was founded by Harrison Eiteljorg. The museum showcases Western and Native American art and cultural objects. The museum's design is inspired by the land, people, and architecture of the American Southwest.

Here are some rootin'-tootin' facts on this years Bessie's Bed cowboy hat!
Bessie's Bed is a children's book that I illustrated about a bathrobe-clad woman who shares her warm, dry bed with several animals that have been washed out of their homes one stormy night. The author of this fun beginning reader, Terry Webb Harshman, is an ace-high gal from right here in Indiana, too! I am honored to have the opportunity to create a hat for the 2007 Buckaroo Bash!

***It's Snowing!***

I'm excited again to be part of
Robert's Snow : For Cancer's Cure!

Robert's Snow is an online auction that benefits the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
200 children's book illustrators will create art on individual snowflake-shaped wooden templates. They will auction these snowflake creations on eBay with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Sarcoma Research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/The Jimmy Fund.

This year's snowflake adorns an original poem contributed
by Rebecca Kai Dotlich. I am honored to have the opportunity to
illustrate her beautiful words for the
2007 Robert's Snow Snowflake: For Cancer's Cure.
AND can you tell? ... I LOVE poetry!

Book Reviews

A Wild and Woolly Night
Author: Lorraine Lynch Geiger
Illustrated by Sharon Vargo

A Wild and Woolly Night
is a children’s picture book for children ages 4 to 12. A hardback edition with a cover that is beautifully illustrated with a boy in his bed surrounded by a variety of animals...
By Terry South

Once in a great while a book comes across my desk that I can hardly wait to tell the Bookworm readers about. And this has happened. Florida author, Lorraine Lynch Geiger and Indiana illustrator, Sharon Vargo, have teamed together for a deliciously different book for children of all ages, "A Wild and Woolly Night"....

Just off the press is the colorful hardback "Wild and Woolly Night". This fast moving story revealing a mysterious parade of animals may be read at a galloping pace for older children and promotes parent/child bonding as it creates suspense on every page....
The book is a well-written fantasy, in verse and humor, about a small boy trying to fall asleep. He is kept awake by an assortment of cuddly critters moving about on his stash of bedspreads. It is designed for ages four through twelve. Sharon Vargo, an author and illustrator, has added magic to the cover and pages with her friendly little critter images.
