Richard Jesse WatsonWhy 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.
