Dickens - Wallace West
I love a good villain. So when it came to choosing a subject for a Dickens-ian illustration for the CBIG Charles Dickens exhibit at the Yonkers Riverfront Gallery, how could I choose anyone but Madame Defarge from A TALE OF TWO CITES? The predecessor of evil queens and wicked stepmothers as far as I'm concerned.
The Children's Book Illustrators Group was started in 1987 by a group of Brooklyn children's book illustrators to share publishing information and experiences. In its current incarnation, CBIG is a group of mainly NYC-area illustrators and author/illustrators, from neophytes to published pros, in children's publishing and related fields. With about 60 members, there is a CBIG Illustrator for every need in the kids' publishing industry.
