In case you missed the announcement on social media, I wanted to share here that I have, after much difficult deliberation, chosen the winners of my second Draw the Author Contest!
What does this mean?
It means that Jacob and Josh will have their portraits of me published in Books 5 and 6 of my Geeger the Robot early chapter book series — becoming, as elementary schoolers, PUBLISHED ILLUSTRATORS. I can’t wait until they get to walk into a bookstore or library, pick a book up off the shelf, and see their artwork printed inside of it. It’s such an honor and pleasure to get to help make that moment happen.
Thank you, thank you again to the hundreds of kids who entered the contest. Every single drawing brought me a great deal of joy. And they were ALL wonderful in their own ways. Choosing just two was, truly, extremely challenging.
If you want to see the winning portraits from my last Draw the Author Contest, check out the first four Geeger books — Geeger the Robot Goes to School, Geeger the Robot: Lost and Found, Geeger the Robot to the Rescue, and Geeger the Robot: Party Pal. You’ll find a portrait drawn by a different kid in each book.
Congratulations again to Jacob and Josh! And stay tuned for more news about the next two books in my Geeger the Robot series!
