Meeting Brian Biggs

by Dawn S | Nov 15, 2016
Every fall the University of Findlay's Mazza Museum sponsors this wonderful conference where six highly acclaimed illustrators and authors come and speak about their work in children's books. I have been privileged to attend five of these conferences and each time I am amazed and entertained by the artists' stories and skills.
Last weekend I got to see:Brian Biggs sign at the Mazza Conference

Isn't that a great collection of authors and illustrators?

Most speakers talk a little about their childhood and how they got interested in art. We get to see lots of pictures of early artistic work, the process sketches behind their best known books, and sneak peeks of upcoming projects that aren't yet published.

It was great to see these talented people talk about their work and I can't wait to go again next November and hear another batch of great children's book people talk about how and why they make such wonderful books for kids.
