Enter Misc. Av Contest: Children's Books

This contest is about children's books and the incredible artwork that brings them to life, from the cover to the pages in between.

Aside from the standard avatar rules, there are two others:

1. For the purposes of this contest, I'm cutting off the age range at books written for teens/young adults. So, Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments, Twilight (teehee), Divergent, etc. are not eligible. Harry Potter is. If there are any questions, I'll make the determination.

2. Please, no TV or Media based on the books. Only original artwork designed for the books (cover, page illustrations, etc.) is eligible.

If you're looking for inspiration, here's a handy list. It might also be helpful to identify the title (and illustrator, if you know him or her). I'll put the poll up by the end of the work week (most likely Thursday night).

Good luck!



The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, W.W. Denslow

I still love the charming simplicity of Ernest Shepard's original illustrations for A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh.



(And Disney committed blasphemy by giving the animated Pooh characters American accents.)

Ah, good topic. I know exactly what I'm going to do. And I'll bet nobody else has ever heard of it.

This is not the cover of The Mousehole Cat, but my favourite painting in it--The Great Storm Cat. Nicola Bayley's illustrations are marvellous. I have no idea if this pic is too big, so here goes:

Avatars must be 150 x 150 pixels max, just like the avatars for the BBS. That's 231 x 235. Use photobucket to resize it.

Thank you. I didn't know the actual pixel size it had to be, and have edited my original entry accordingly. I learned something new today!
