2. Backyard Books closes soon
And, the Backyard Books illustration exhibition closes at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum on February 15th. If you’ve never been, it’s worth a visit just for the giant whale skeleton that hangs from the ceiling and because you can walk all over some of the specimens (picture proof below). Also there are lots of drawers full of treasures. Well, at least the kind of things I think are treasures. Shells, insects, bones…
There is daily programming for children – story time (under the blue whale, of course), puppet shows etc, so it’s a great outing for kids.
The illustration I have on exhibit is a cover rough from my very first picture book, which is still in print and still plodding along…13 years later. The curators paired the painting with a cetacean skull.
