Meet the Artist #4

As part of the hoopla around our first-ever public exhibition of illustrations by SCBWI WWA artists, Update will post a mini-profile of each,* in completely random order, between now and the exhibit's closure in early January. Read about 'em here, or check them ALL out online here, or go see their work in person at the Washington State Convention Center! You can even shake their hands on Dec. 12 at our Holiday Gathering! (More info and registration here.)

Richard Jesse Watson

Why did you choose to submit your particular piece of art?
Because it makes me happy. It made me happy to paint it, and it makes me happy to see others making art.

What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
Being a part of SCBWI means being a part of a caring, literate community of writers, rabbits, renegades, and rascals. And I mean the good kind of rabbits.

What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
Make Way for Ducklings.

Fun fact: Richard's work is in a solo exhibition at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art from now through January 2014. Learn more about him, and see more images, on STQRY here.

*excluding only those lazy bones or privacy freaks who don't answer our email questions, of course. We love them anyway.
