What’s going on here? My site started ten years ago this month and to celebrate I’m giving away something each weekday. Because I like you.
Yay! Today I have the ABC Poster from Matthew Porter to give away. Matthew Porter is a Seattle illustrator and childrens book author whose distinctive style has become familiar to our household, we’ve bought several of his books for our niece and nephews. His wife, Andrea, is the administrative side of the business (and since I work with her in the GBA I can tell you she is a force). They owned the Bluebottle art gallery here in Seattle for eight years. In addition to his books he sells original art and onsies, hoodies and posters in the shop. His most familiar character is a monkey and his book Monkey World is a lot of fun, I have to admit we read through a few times before mailing it off to our niece and nephew. I absolutely love that Matthew offers his top 10 childrens books for inspiration (bottom half of the page), there are a few books there I just barely remember.
If you’d like to win the ABC poster please leave a comment with this entry. You have until 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18th to enter, the fine print applies. If you’d like something to mention here is a question to answer: Did you have a book as a kid that you remember to this day? Mine was Dr. Seuss’s The First of Octember, because my birthday falls early in October and I was fascinated by the idea that there might be a month in there somewhere I hadn’t been told about! Alright, good luck. Closed, thanks for entering!
