Children's Book Characters at Hollins

Fellow Professor Ashley Wolff has created the most adorable figurines of classic children's book characters to be placed around campus during our MFA in Children's Book Writing and Illustrating and Certificate in Children's Book Illustration programs. She launched them at this year's Francelia Butler conference. They were a huge hit! Ferdinand was my fave:
Here's Ashley with Eeyore!
She also did the caterpillar from THE HUNGRY CATERPILLAR, Frog from FROG AND TOAD, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet and several others. What a charming addition to our program!

I have MORE! Ashley sent more photos along... One of our student's (Kassy Keppol) children are with her this term and they helped cut out and paint...

The results were wonderful!

These will go up every year, scattered around campus, along with our fabulous direction sign. More on that soon...
